Language Problems

Sometimes language just doesn't cut it, no matter how hard you try.  A few weeks ago David and I decided to talk about our experiences travelling, but what was supposed to be a series of observations on a really interesting part of the world very quickly broke down into something quite different.  It turned out that David didn't understand why I did what I did, and I didn't understand why he didn't understand, and language didn't seem up to the task of bridging the divide.

In this podcast we explore the gap between us and the limitations of language in the face of very different life experiences.

Here is the podcast: Language Problems

How about you guys, do you have any similar stories in your own life where language just wasn't up to the task?  What did you do?
