Lingthusiasm is a new podcast dedicated to all aspects of linguistics, including grammar structures, vocabulary, and "vowel gymnastics," (see episode 17, which explores how your tongue moves in a trapezoid shape to create different vowel sounds). The podcast, released on the third Thursday of every month, is hosted by writer Gretchen McCulloch (who will be releasing a book in 2019 about internet language) and scholar Lauren Gawne (whose research interests include the role of gesture in language and Tibeto-Burman languages). In one recent episode, McCulloch and Gawne talk about words that are allegedly "untranslatable" in other languages (such as the German word schadenfreude). Another recent episode explores swear words across languages. Each episode is accompanied by a list of resources for those interested in further reading.
