Our Magnificent Bastard Tongue: The Untold Story of English by John McWhorter It's short, just under 5:30 hours, and narrated by the author. He does spend some time bashing people who disagree with his ideas, but he's entertaining and informative. Also: A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson. Despite the title, the history is of physics, cosmology, geology, biology and paleontology. But Bryson plays the language like a musical instrument, and you get to learn a great deal about the subjects he covers. More important, he presents his subjects in a historical context.
