Retro Episode 110: Pardon My French


RETRO: Dan gets an earworm and it turns into an entire episode on the phrase, "Pardon My French". Cause that's how it goes sometimes. This week our phrase moves from the early 1800s literal usage to a current way to excuse bad language, with plenty of high points along the way. #BunnyTrails

A quick note about Show Notes...

 Beginning May 17, 2023, we will be merging the show notes into the episode post. This means you can find the show notes on the same post as the episode instead of have two separate posts for them. 

Patrons at any level can get a better formatted pdf version of the show notes at The formatting here on blogger has gone downhill over the years and we are struggling to make the show notes formatted in a way that makes them aesthetically pleasing within Bloggers constraints. Still, we want to make sure you have access to them for free, without needing to have access to a Patreon account.
