Idiomatic For The People, Part I

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Language is beautiful and, in many cases, continually evolving. As a result, we end up with hundreds of strange idioms and figures of speech that we use on a daily basis, with little to no understanding of what they originally meant. Join the guys and special guest, Rowan Newbie, the creator of the Pitches podcast, as they explore the bizarre origins of your favorite turns of phrase. (Ben here, with a bonus question: I went through and noted multiple turns of phrase we all used unintentionally - how many can you catch?)<br><br>Learn more about advertising on the HowStuffWorks podcasts at <a href='http://www.howstuffworks.com/advertisers.htm'>www.howstuffworks.com/advertisers.htm</a><br><br>And to learn about your ad choices when listening to podcasts, visit <a href='https://www.howstuffworks.com/privacy.htm#ad-choices'>https://www.howstuffworks.com/privacy.htm#ad-choices</a>
