What are the real stories behind the most misunderstood and abused ideas in politics? From ‘woke’ to ‘centrism’ and beyond, this illuminating pod explores the hidden histories of the concepts you thought you knew.
ABOUT ORIGIN STORY
As published authors, both Ian Dunt and Dorian Lynskey are fascinated with the language used to share knowledge. But what happens when that language is ill-defined, poorly aged or flat-out meaningless?
Origin Story is their response. In each 50-minute episode, Ian and Dorian focus their attention on exploring a single over-used (and over-abused) word or phrase. Through a combination of historical, etymological and contextual analysis, they unmask the true meaning of our most popular misinterpreted expressions—giving listeners keen insight into the murky nature of political and societal communication.
