The Allusionist

Linguistic adventures with Helen Zaltzman for Radiotopia from PRX.

    Episode Description:

    ‘Continent’, as in a land mass, is much more complicated semantically than the bodily function control sense of ‘continent’.

    Plus: more ‘please’, and how ‘thank you’ is not necessarily an expression of gratitude.

    TL;DR: trust nothing.
