Linguistics and our love of Ashley Bloomfield

From Nights, 9:47 pm on 14 October 2020

If anyone can explain why Dr Ashley Bloomfield became a national heart-throb, it's a linguistics expert - right? A new podcast series aims to help us understand what lies behind all the words, sentences, signs and slogans that surround us every day. We're joined by one of it's creators Dr Julia de Bres from Massey University.
