Max Cryer is a New Zealand living treasure in both entertainment and etymological spheres.

The man, the myth and the legend himself joins Mike Puru, in for Graeme Hill, this week to discuss words - their origin and meaning.

In light of Kim and Trump saturating the media through the last week- the word of the week is ‘summit’.

Also the origins of natter, nincompoop, and bogan.

Plus, it’s kiwifruits' birthday!
