2: Talking $h*t

Very Bad Words is the podcast about swearing and taboo language. On this episode we explore the origins of one of the oldest swear words in the English language, shit. We talk with linguist Geoff Nunberg and “the psychologist of swearing" Timothy Jay to find out why it is still one of the most popular and versatile words - even after centuries of use.
