This week, Ben sits down with linguist, professor, and author John McWhorter to discuss both of his new books, Nine Nasty Words: English in the Gutter: Then, Now, and Forever and Woke Racism: How a New Religion Has Betrayed Black America.

John shares why he decided to examine profanity from every angle: historical, sociological, political, and linguistic. Later, he argues that even as a black liberal, he thinks that the left has taken the idea of ‘anti-racist’ too far.
