Is swearing good for you?

by Eureka!

With Christmas around the corner we thought it was the perfect time to whip out some of our favourite blue language! This week, we’re finding out the science behind why we swear, including the history of bad language and the effect swearing has on our brains. Also, do animals swear? And can swearing really help alleviate pain? Plus, we find out a little bit more about tourettes and how swearing can impact on your social capital. This episode is f***ing fascinating.
