Many of our guests, before we start recording, ask us if they can cuss on the podcast and we say “Hell yeah!” I mean F*ck yeah.” But, we discourage it anyway because as good as it feels to let it all out, cussing sometimes keeps people from speaking their minds.

Recently Trump’s Public Enemy #1, the BBC, said they’re not f*cking crazy about cussing and decided to look into into why people love to swear.

Today, Brian Sweeney, who every other word is BEEEP joins us to take a look at taboo words, why everyone doesn’t agrees on what foul language is, and will newscasters in the future cuss like sailors?


A managing partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers was busy backstage tweeting photos of Emma Stone and now is getting blamed for the Best Picture f*ck up.

Teletubbies and Crazy Frog turn f*cking 20.

Patricia Arquette is mad as HELL that her sibling Alexis was left out of the Oscar’s “In Memoriam.”

    I’ve just caught up with this episode. While I’ve always found your research and commentary to be excellent, I do feel I can add a little to your excellent knowledge base on the matter of British term “bloody”. It has little to do with bodily fluids. “Bloody” is a reference to royal blood, and the frustration Brits may have with anyone who holds a title — the blood line. This most likely to do with local lords of the manor. Many farmers rented their land off the local “land lord”, who could quite often be a frustrating and infuriating individual. Cursing the “bloody” lord would be discrediting his blood line.

    Most cultures base their cursing around their biggest cultural frustrations. Catholic cultures tend to go after the church, where the Brits are more focused on bodily parts. Most (hetero) men are frustrated by their lack of easy access to women, and so direct their wrath on women. “Cunt” is usually viewed as the vilest of all insults.

    Keep up the excellent work!

    Cheers from snowy Ottawa, Canada.
