By Jason Buberel on July 3, 2009
Format: Audio CD
I've been a long time fan/listener to Mr. Hodgson's Podictionary.com podcast. In this short listen, he gives a quick overview of the history of the English language. Without getting bogged down in the details, you'll come away with an understanding of when and where it started and the major contributors to its evolution. Worth the quick listen (less than 2 hours).
