I am delighted to report that two of my very favorite internet linguists Lauren Gawne and Gretchen McCulloch have teamed up to launch a podcast called Lingthusiasm. It’s a podcast that’s enthusiastic about linguistics!!!
They launched with three episodes:
- Speaking a common language won’t lead to world peace
- Pronouns: singular “they”, other languages, and solving the gay fanfiction pronoun problem
- A lingthusiastic review of the alien linguistics movie Arrival
and I am a little late to this party in announcing this, but that means that I also get to announce a FOURTH <!> episode 🙂 this one taking you behind-the-scenes to chronicle the drama, the Pathos of the WOTY vote – Word of the Year – at the Linguistics Society of America meeting, which happened in Austin at the beginning of this month!!
There will be episodes monthly.
