worth hearing today

worth hearing • Guy Raz interviewslanguage consultant Jeremy Butterfield, author of A Damp Squid: The English Language Laid Bare.

worth hearing redux • NPR’s Talk of the Nation has a series of eight interviews with the authors from Grove/Atlantic series, Books That Changed the World, for example P.J. O’Rourke on ‘The Wealth of Nations’, Janet Browne on ‘the Origin of Species’, Christopher Hitchens on ‘The RIghts of Man’, Karen Armstrong on the Bible. I am working my way throught this series of book biographies, as they are completely fascinating.
