Your New Favorite Word RSS Feed

Welcome to "Your New Favorite Word", a podcast celebrating wordiness, nerdiness and sometimes plain absurdiness!

We are Jamis and Tessa Buck, lovers of words and word play. Tessa's degree in Linguistics grants us some credibility, but the truth is, most of what we do on this podcast is purely from the heart. If you love words, you'll love our show!
