Your New Favorite Word

Episode 1.16

In this episode, Tessa investigates euphemisms for death and dying in English and other languages. [Our dialog here is fairly lighthearted; if you’ve recently lost someone close to you, you might want to skip this section.] Jamis takes a Proto Indo-European root and runs wild with it, exploring all its pointy, poignant, and pugnacious descendants.
