5.0 out of 5 stars This podcast is the bee's knees! May 30, 2012

Occassionally I happen to catch this show on NPR on the radio, and I love it. I was very pleased to find a nice app on the kindle that puts all their shows at my fingertips so I can listen whenever I want. Great show; great app!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great show and app January 26, 2013
Verified Purchase
This program is fantastic, wish it would have had a home on the Colorado puclic radio station so I could have had earlier exposure. Now that I am in San Diego I get to enjoy it live every week, and with this app I can catch up on five years of shows. A "must-have" if your a fan of etymology. Plus the hosts are funny, relatable, and do a great job of explaining things in a way which anyone can understand.

4.0 out of 5 stars where are the extras? April 2, 2013
By Cindy Y

I love this podcast; I had it on my ipod but switched to the Kindle app for convenience.
It's a great show, very informative and fun.
However, the app description promised "extras" for this being a paid app and so far I have yet to see any extras. When i chose the key that says "extras" I am told there are no extras. What's up with that??

But overall, a big thumbs up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and informative March 20, 2013
By Jailee

I'm obsessed with this show. The app works great, it gives you the current broadcast along with tons of back broadcasts. For each episode, you have a short written synopsis as well as a lengthy, detailed description of the entire broadcast. I would love to see an update that shows what episodes have been watched. Overall, the app functions better than expected and is a great way to listen to my favorite radio show at my convenience.

1.0 out of 5 stars Android version doesn't work April 6, 2014
Verified Purchase
I can't get it to actually play a selected episode. It does nothing for awhile, then crashes and freezes the phone (especially if I hit Pause). I force stopped, cleared cache, cleared data, uninstalled and reinstalled. Same result. Clearly not designed well for Android OS (version 4.3 on a Samsung Galaxy S4). I'll see if I can get my money back, but it's kind of worth $1.99 to be able to warn other Android users away from it.

Fascinating podcast. Entertaining and informative program about interesting words and phrases and their origins including slang etc. Try it on their website and you will be hooked, then download the app. This app makes it easy to download and listen to all the podcasts of "A Way with Words".

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like the show, get this app March 28, 2013

This app allows you to both stream and download the show to your Kindle. You can pause each episode if you don't want to listen in one sitting, and pickup later. It's a great way to follow the show if you're looking to enhance your vocabulary and word knowledge.

My wife and I started listening a couple weeks ago and we were hooked. It was the highlight of our Sunday afternoons just to take a drive to anywhere and listen in. Except now we can take that leisurely Sunday drive while laughing and learning anytime!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Content, Mediocre Presentation App
The program content gets five stars but only three stars for the app. The app could be better, but if you are a lover of language you will not find a better show.
