Because Language is a new podcast with linguist Daniel Midgley, starting in 2016.
Daniel is a presenter on Talk the Talk, a popular radio show and podcast on community radio station RTRFM 92.1, Perth.
Because Language is different from its predecessor in that, while Talk the Talk keeps listeners informed on current events and breaking news in linguistics, Because Language is squarely focused on interviews. Listeners will get a chance to hear longer discussions with people who are influential in the linguistic community — researchers on the cutting edge, writers who are working to explain linguistics to a popular audience, and movers and shakers in the world of words.
Some episodes of Because Language will be free, while additional episodes will be available for purchase. Subscribers can download entire seasons.
