Season 2 on YouTube

Season 2 of the Word Crimes podcast is now available on YouTube! Here’s episode 1, which featured Johnny Shaw’s “Luck.”

The entire season is available at my YouTube channel. Enjoy!

And… we know it’s been a while since there have been any new episodes. Hang in there. Scott’s been covering the U.S. presidential election for NPR and I’ve been busy with a variety of projects (not to mention my day job), but we haven’t forgotten the podcast!
