Emily joins me for a fun, disjointed chat about a topic very dear to me: namely, the etymology of ‘bad language’. We talk about the battles of Lenny Bruce, George Carlin and his seven words you can never say on television, and the Old English origins of vulgar language. We also talk about medieval history, GG Allin, and the intensity of Russian criminals.
