These idioms are commonly used in American movies, dramas, westerns and possibly newscasts. Rarely are these sayings used in everyday talk unless talking about someone else outside your social circle- I hope! Enjoy listening to this week's American English idiom podcast.
More about the definitions, origins and meanings of these American idioms and sayings:
"Get out of Dodge"
"Make Yourself Scarce"
