What’s that? AMANDA is leading an episode? It’s the gift that keeps on giving—and naturally, we go full nerd. We talk linguistics, Julia gets some stuff right (and wrong), Amanda has breakfast in bed with the Oxford Dictionary, you discover what a plowie is, and we all realize that language isn’t always an exact science.
