    I would love to attend this. To someone who is multi-lingual, the topic of language has always been of interest.

    Want to take my wife of 30+ years, who has taught me that its all about words

  8. Angela S November 13, 2018 at 3:40 pm #

    Learning new things is the way the brain grows. A new look at language totally fascinates me. I am only monolingual, but know phrases in over 20 different languages.

  13. Miriam November 14, 2018 at 9:40 am #

    Beautiful! My brother and I were JUST marveling at the way my grandma put words together that somehow made sense when you talked to her, but could almost be nonsense if someone else said it. Part of that “family language” thing. I love words. Would love to check this out to see how they put the pieces together! Thank you,

    I need comedy, communication, intelligence, and eye opening writing to survive

  15. Jasmine Jay-Bonn November 15, 2018 at 3:22 pm #

    Fascinating premise, sounds like a fun night!

  16. Paul November 15, 2018 at 3:35 pm #

    I would so love to take my SO to this. Such a word nerd she is :).

  17. Glenn November 15, 2018 at 4:46 pm #

    I’d love to go because my wife often gets all talkie, talkie about better communication!!!

  18. Bobbie November 15, 2018 at 6:13 pm #

    I love words. When you need them for their meaning they’re there.

  19. Surrly November 17, 2018 at 12:53 am #

    Just started listening to this show about a month or so ago and now they’re coming to my town. Would love to see them in person. Because I loves the words, all of them. Even the ugly ones.

  20. surrly November 17, 2018 at 12:56 am #

    I use words all the time! And I love this show. I volunteer to win.

    Pick me! I’ve commented three times now and none of them have been posted. Three times! That’s how much I want to win.

    Words convey information and allow expression. They also share a person’s culture, philosophy, background, attitude and much more through choice and tone. I would like to be more aware of word choice and meaning to enable better communication, understanding and connection in my relationships and encounters.

  34. Suzie November 21, 2018 at 2:39 pm #

    Am currently creating a podcast with a friend and write as my artistic outlet. I would love to add this very pertinent information to my tool belt. Thanks for your time!
