Jargon

Digital Trends presents
A Show About Words That Trip Us Up

Hosted by Myq Kaplan

Tuesdays 12pm PT / 3pm ET

Every Tuesday, Jargon will deep dive into an particular industry, attempting to define key pieces of jargon that someone just entering the industry might encounter. Keeping step-in-tone with a Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, the show will approach technical language from the point of view of humorous ignorance, exploring the terms with the audience before bringing on a subject matter expert to make terms and concepts digestible.
