Max Cryer joins RadioLIVE's Graeme Hill to banter over words, their origin and meaning.
Graeme and Mr Cryer explore the question: “What is a Pope?”
The pair then explore why a popular biscuit and dog are both coined Afghans.
Mr Cryer takes a look at who said 'Hunky Dory' first, before taking a gander at the origin of Angostura Bitters.
If you are interested in the origin of a word or phrase, e-mail your wordy questions to Graeme here and he’ll forward them to Max.
