Piggyback: Animal Words with No Animal Origins


“Piggyback” has nothing to do with pigs! In fact, there are many seemingly animal-related words and phrases in the English language that have nothing to do with animals at all! In today’s episode, I offer up the backstory to words such as piggyback, monkey wrench, round robin, and spelling bee. 

Thanks to listener supporters who receive transcripts of every episode.
