Lingthusiasm podcast

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!!!

You can listen to it on iTunes, Soundcloud, Google Play MusicYouTube or most other podcast apps via rss.

They launched with three episodes:

  1. Speaking a common language won’t lead to world peace
  2. Pronouns: singular “they”, other languages, and solving the gay fanfiction pronoun problem
  3. 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.

You can follow Lingthusiasm on Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr.
