Words swords words.

Watch Your Mouth — now out on NPR


Need a palate cleanser to steel yourself for the next wave of news to make you go "ugh"?
Then check out Watch Your Mouth, a fun and revealing compliation of two episodes all about language and cognition on NPR's Hidden Brain podcast.
The rebroadcast features the Lost in Translation episode I opened back in January, with cognitive scientist Lera Boroditsky — plus another episode featuring Columbia professor of linguistics John McWhorter talking about the plasticity of language and how meanings can flip and switch. Happy listening!
