About Us

Do you take great pleasure out of using large and obscure words that no one understands? Perhaps you enjoy peppering a strange adjective into a work email, or finding a new verb to pursue as a hobby? Or perhaps you’re a seasoned logophile such as myself. Well, this is surely the podcast for you.

An Assemblage of Grandiose and Bombastic Grandiloquents brings together all the world’s most interesting, bizarre, and fascinating language to teach you a new word every day.

On Monday, we discuss interesting insults - brand new ways to disparage those who taunt you. On Tuesdays, it’s Konichiwa, bonjour, and hola to words that are not from our native English language. On wild card Wednesdays, you’ll be presented with something odd and strange, unlikely to be a word you’ve ever heard before, and Thursdays we turn to plants and animals for linguistic inspiration. Finally, Fridays find philias and phobias - all your favourite obsessions and worst fears.

Itching for more auditory pleasure? We know you are! Search An Assemblage of Grandiose and Bombastic Grandiloquents on any good podcatcher to find more, and learn something new today! Or find us at thatsnotcanon.com to learn more. We can’t wait to explore the wonderful world of words with you!

Pandamonium

Howdy hey there, partner! Get on down and welcome to An Assemblage of Grandiose and Bombastic Grandiloquents! Now did that greeting seem a little odd? Perhaps even crazy? Good! That is precisely what I was going for, as I explain today’s word: pandemonium.

A good day to you, fellow literary lover, and welcome to today’s episode of An Assemblage of Grandiose and Bombastic Grandiloquents. We are going to get a little existential here today, so strap yourselves in and prepare for today’s word: onism.

Why hello there, sumptuous syntax suitors, and welcome to another jolly episode of An Assemblage of Grandiose and Bombastic Grandiloquents. I must advise you, kind listener, to not use today’s word in polite society, and I hope that indeed you shan’t have any use for it, as today’s word is: foppotee.

A blessed day, word whisperers, and welcome to another installment of An Assemblage of Grandiose and Bombastic Grandiloquents. Today, praise be, we look at a word that you might say is ‘holier than thou’, for today’s word is: hagiomania.

Serendipity

A most pleasant day to you today, my word worms! Welcome to another joyous episode of An Assemblage of Grandiose and Bombastic Grandiloquents. Now to examine today’s word, we need to first get something out of the way. ‘Serendipity’ is the seminal classic 2001 film starring Kate Beckinsale and John Cusack, which follows the romance between a New Yorker and a British woman as they let fate determine if they are meant to be together. Years later, they hope that destiny reunites them. Today, however, we are not talking about that ‘Serendipity’, dear listener, but I can confirm for you, that today’s word is: serendipity.

A hearty good day to you, fellow examiners of English, and welcome to another installment of An Assemblage of Grandiose and Bombastic Grandiloquents. Today’s episode is for the chefs out there, particularly those who like to prepare a traditional meal, but with a bit of a twist. Today’s word is: spatchcock.

A happy, happy day to you, wholesome listener, and a warm welcome to this episode of An Assemblage of Grandiose and Bombastic Grandiloquents. Today’s word brings back fond memories for me, of a speech I once gave with a friend in primary school. My dear friend could not pronounce today’s word, and I, the mighty seven year old that I was, took it upon myself to correct her each time. It seems that my love of words began at a young age, dear listener. I digress. Today’s word, pronounceable or unpronounceable as it may be is: genre.
