Summer Radio Show About Words

CBC Radio One has a new, 10 episode show called that focusses entirely on words. It's called "And Sometimes Y". The little blurb about the show carries the following explanation: "This is not your high-school librarian's dream show. From losing ourselves in translation to language taboos, "And Sometimes Y" digs beyond words and explores what's behind the way we talk and why." If you'd like to listen to the show online, check out CBC's list of links to local stations. I don't know if U.S. or international listeners can tune in to the show live, but there are snippets of it archived. The Word Nerd has items to share, and host Russell Smith has a section for rants about language. Via Quill and Quire.
