An Idiom a Day

A 5-Minute Dose of Idioms. Learn Something New Every Day.
 
Don't Be An Idiom is a podcast that explores the origin stories of common phrases and idioms. The podcast is based in Philadelphia and hosted by rambunctious loonies Albert and Ryan, two lifelong friends who have vowed to dispel their own ignorance about language and history one idiom at a time.
 
Welcome to our whimsical adventure of idioms and other turns of phrase. Each week, we delve into the origins of phrases to find out how they came into the English language. We tell the story of how the phrase got from its beginnings to where it is today. Shauna and Dan are two big nerds, so expect some geek culture references, random trivia facts, and loads of laughs!
 
Have you ever wondered why it rains "cats and dogs" or why someone you like just told you to go "break a leg?" Check in weekly with your hosts Scott and Steve as they reveal the fascinating and sometimes bizarre origins of the words and phrases we use every day.
