Slang is a type of informal language that is typically spoken in a certain areas or by a group of people. Culture is dynamic. Language is dynamic and in this podcast we will explore the connections between them and the way new words and expressions emerge in different places in the US.

Rather, we will explore the creative dimensions of words and how language is constantly transforming and changing based on the dynamic cultural surroundings.
