Smith has been writing and talking about words for 29 years.  She hosts “Chrysti the Wordsmith,” a two-minute radio series on the origins and histories of words and phrases in the English language.  “Chrysti the Wordsmith” is produced at KGLT-FM on the campus of Montana State University in Bozeman and is syndicated in Montana, Wyoming, Utah, and worldwide on Armed Forces Radio and Television Network.
In both her radio and live presentations, Smith shares the joys of clichés, onomatopoeia, palindromes, boustrophedon, mondegreens, acronyms and eponyms with adult and student audiences, and with anyone else who will listen.
