Do You Have Rizz Or Are You Poyo?

"Rizz" - defined as "someone’s ability to attract another person through style, charm or attractiveness" - has been named word of the year by the Oxford University Press. We use this as a springboard to discuss being up to date on slang, and our listeners chime in with the slang words they remember using.
