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.
