About this Episode

Self-care, backstop, vegan, glamping, problematic - those are evocative words and they have the power to sum up a whole year.

Join us as we delve into a selection of wonderful words of the year from many languages, figure out what “self care” even means, and discuss the ban on plastic straws.

Dive into this week's extra long link selection to find out more about the many words of the year we covered from Great Britain, Australia, the USA, Japan (it's a kanji!), France, Portugal, and Germany.

(I demonstrated some ignorance about the colours of the Jamaican flag 🇯🇲 and have educated myself since then. There is no red in that flag! My apologies.)
