It’s officially summer, if you’re listening to this episode around the time it comes out in June of 2017. Let’s get away from the deep subjects like we had last week with The Story Behind Hypnotism and The Story Behind Subliminal Messages and do a lighter topic. Maybe something you can listen to while laying in the sand on the beach somewhere soaking up the summer sun. Or, if you’ve just found the Story Behind and listening to past episodes in the cold winter months, transport yourself mentally to the beach as you listen.
Even if you’re not one of the 23 million people worldwide who participate in the pastime I’m focusing on in this week’s episodes, you can feel like you’re riding the waves with two episodes focusing on the sport and some of the language surrounding it.
I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind Surfing.
