A Quick Vocabulary Lesson!

Sean ConneryOrlando BloomWhat does it mean to be "macho?" Macho means super masculine to an extreme (in appearance and behavior). If you asked someone from America or the UK what actor is the most "macho" you might get Sean Connery. Muscular and hairy! Most people would not call an actor like Orlando Bloom "macho" because he does not fit the definition.

Here is an example sentence:

"Did you see the old James Bond movie on TV last night? Sean Connery is so macho!"

The song "Macho Man" at the end of the podcast is from the Village People's Greatest Hits.
