In this episode, Amy explores the connection between a fictional 18th century group of simpletons and cowboy rejoicing with “yahoo” and Ryan finds the connection between stovetop cooking and mountaineering with “rank”.
Lexitecture is a podcast about words. In each episode, a Canadian (Ryan) and a Scot (Amy) each present their current favourite word and talk about its origins, current use, and try to puzzle out how it may have gone from A to B. If you love thinking and talking about words, word origins, or just random bits of head-scratching language trivia, this may be the show for you!
