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

He joins Graeme Hill to banter over the origin of words and their meaning.

This week Max poses the question - If you’re a cowboy should you holler Yippee I Aye or Yippee Kye Aye?

He also ponders where or not badgers really badger?

And finally, Max explores why a show is called a gig.
