Talk the Talk is RTRFM’s weekly show about linguistics, the science of language. Linguist Daniel Midgley, Ben Ainslie, and Kylie Sturgess tackle language change, language tech, new words, society, minority languages, and language and the mind.
Daniel teaches linguistics at Edith Cowan University and the University of Western Australia. Ben teaches media studies to the next generation of Western Australia’s secondary school students.
Kylie is a former philosophy teacher, and writes about the paranormal and the pseudoscientific for the “Token Skeptic” podcast.
Together, they look at language in all its variety and splendour while listening to some great tunes. Catch them on Tuesdays at 11am and check out their blog: talkthetalkpodcast.com
