Hyperbolic Headlines on A Way with Words, Saturday at 1pm

A way with words logo and newspaper

Hyperbolic Headlines Will Restore Your Faith In Humanity!!!! Or maybe not. You've seen those breathless headlines on the internet, like "You Won't Believe What This 7-year-old Said to The President!" They're supposed to lure you to another webpage--but now there's a backlash against such clickbait. Plus, the most beautiful word in the Icelandic language. And if being disgruntled means you're annoyed, does being gruntled mean you're happy? Plus, To Whom It May Concern, and that awkward silence in elevators.

Saturday at 1pm on 88.9 and 12 Noon central time on 89.1  in Panama City.
