Stuff You Should Know

Overview

If you've ever muttered 'great' when stuck in traffic, you've used sarcasm. But why do we say the opposite of what we mean, and why does it have such power?

In this episode of the Stuff You Should Know podcast, hosts Josh Clark and Chuck Bryant delve into the often-used but little-understood form of communication. Launched in 2008, while the pair were working as editors for infotainment website How Stuff Works, the show has become one of the most popular podcasts of all time, providing listeners with a well-informed overview of novel topics, ranging from science to pop culture. Through exploring its history, usage, and definitions, Clark and Bryant find surprising facts about sarcasm and its place in our world.
