Bonus 55: Word Origins of Countries and Other Regions

A fun romp through the origins of the names of many countries and other regions.

Learn how some countries and regions are named after bugs, animals, gold, tin, big feet, explorers, tribes, marshes, mountains, rivers, snow, poor translations, and a decayed log of wood.

If you like Whisperpedia History episodes, Trivia Time episodes, and Chatty Chat episodes – then this will be a delightful cup of tea.
