This Week in Podcasts…

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog, but, this week, I’ve listened to two phenomenal podcasts that I wanted to share.

To start with, The World in Words has put together a really fascinating exploration on Trump, looking at how his name has been translated across different languages and communities, including ASL. You can find it here:

Next, I’m completely late to the game on this one, but Lingthusiasm has taken a look at sci-fi/linguistics geekfest film “Arrival”, investigating the theories behind the film and how linguists helped to develop the script and look of the film. It is a geekily phenomenal listen that can be found here:
