Words for Granted

    The Proto Indo-Europeans: A conversation with Kevin Stroud of The History of English Podcast


    This episode features a conversation I had with Kevin Stroud of the History of English Podcast at this year’s virtual Intelligent Speech conference. We discussed reasons why the history of the Proto Indo-Europeans – the linguistic ancestors of nearly half the world’s population – remains obscure to the general public. If you’re thinking racist, pseudoscientific scholarship that led to the concept of the Aryan race during World War II might be to blame, we think so too.
