#081: What's in a name?

#081: What's in a name?

In today’s episode, Greg and Brian start by discussing the news of the Washington Redskins recent name change which leads into a broader discussion of how all words, and specifically names, can have a unique meaning to them that is often missed or misinterpreted. 
They also address the most important factor in situations where words or names become offensive; the person's intent!

Some of the topics discussed in the episode are: Naming conventions, taxonomy, semantics, context and relevance, cancel culture and how meaning changes over time.
