Chrysti the Wordsmith

Welcome to wordsmithradio.org, digital companion to Chrysti the Wordsmith, a daily, two-minute audio interlude produced in the studios of KGLT-FM at Montana State University, Bozeman.

Since 1990, Chrysti “the Wordsmith” Smith has been plumbing the depths of dictionaries obscure, arcane and pedestrian to craft word and phrase histories for her radio audience.

Initiated as a student project on KGLT, Montana State University’s campus radio facility, Chrysti the Wordsmith has become a word-lover’s audio oasis.

Join Chrysti the Wordsmith in the script room, contribute to the etymological conversation, check out Chrysti’s favorite dictionaries and word-related websites, or email your comments and suggestions.
