This week on Appraise The Phrase:


This show has a video version:

Mario and Twenty welcome Screenwriter/Director Monique to the Expression Appraisal Table.

Name-calling is frowned upon but what does it mean when the pot calls the kettle black?

Watch as Mario is joined by Twenty and Screenwriter, Director, and Owner of What We Watch Monique aka Ms. Peacherino to discuss the meaning and origin of The Pot Calling The Kettle Black. Peach dives into what phrases and idioms mean when English is not your first language. She connects The Pot Calling The Kettle Black to generations of hypocrisy while finding a soft spot for a certain fugitive.
