Season 02 , Episode 02 – “Riding Shotgun”
Every day we use words and phrases that come from deep within our history. Their origins reveal a lot about us and where we came from, but most of us have no idea what these terms originally meant.

Why do insensitive people “ride roughshod” over others, while lucky people ride the “gravy train?” Who put the jay in “jaywalker,” and the bus in “busboy?” Why are “highways” high, what do “turnpikes” turn, and why is a wild person “hell on wheels?”
