Linguist and University of California San Diego Professor Ben Bergen joins Bill and Wendy to talk about his new book ‘What The F: What Swearing Reveals About Our Language, Our Brains And Ourselves.’ They break down the history of swearing, how it differs between languages and what it says about our outlook on life, whether we are a”fight or flight” person.

You can find Bill and Wendy on Twitter at @billwendyshow, and on Facebook at Bill Leff and Wendy Snyder. The Bill and Wendy Show airs Monday through Friday from ten a.m. to noon, then from one p.m. to three p.m.
