Max Cryer joins RadioLIVE's Ryan Bradley to banter over words, their origin and their meaning.

Ryan and Max explore the words ‘porn’, ‘suffragette’, ‘chit’ and ‘cicada’ and where they came from.

They focus on the term ‘suffragette’ as this year is the 125th anniversary of women having the right to vote in New Zealand.

Ask Max a question about words and the English language and he’ll get his nose into the books.
