Bonus Episode - The Origin of the Word F**k and Why Society Says It's So Bad
Despite the wideness and proliferation of its use in many sections of society, the word fuck remains (and has been for centuries) one of the most taboo words in English. Until relatively recently it rarely appeared in print; even today, there are a number of euphemistic ways of referring to it in speech and writing. In this episode we explore the origin of the word, some of the arguments of why people say it's so bad, and discuss a couple of scientific studies that have been conducted on people who like to swear more than others.
