In this episode, I talk about how English has
borrowed lots of words from other languages, including quite a few
from German. Sometimes it’s because we don’t have just the right
word to capture a familiar feeling. A well-known illustration of
this is the word “angst.” Another, which is not as well known, is a
feeling called “schadenfreude.” Listen to some fun examples of that
one here, including my own experience of it.
