The Word 'Like' with Amanda Montell
Young women's use of the word 'like' has been parodied for decades, but where did it come from, why do we use it, and why is it, like, so goddamn useful? Linguist and host of Sounds Like A Cult podcast Amanda Montell discusses the versatility of one of the most despised words in the English language, primarily because it's associated with teenage girls. We talked about female voices, how we perceive public speech, and the mystery of Elizabeth Holmes. Amanda Montell is the author of WordSlut and Cultish.
