And don't you forget English's other roots - Latin, French, Greek, a touch of Norse, a bit of Arabic...English is a mutt well and truly. And let's not confuse English's origins with a relatively new entry into the English vocabulary - podcast.

English is also a transmutable beast. Words shift in meaning. They are appropriated, commandeered, misappropriated, hijacked. So it was, so it will be. It is a living language, not fixed. Not dead and pinned to the board for display. And so, whilst I might not agree with how words shift, I'd rather have a living, changing language than a dead and fixed one.

Dirty John was really, really good!

Started on Myths & Legends, impressed by it. Culturally diverse material, and not a whiff of Disney to be had. As someone who had a love of myths & legends as a small child (I raided all libraries in my town and drained them of content on this subject matter by the age of 10), I'm duly appreciative of the time and effort gone into distilling the content into podcast episodes.
