Description

In this episode, Amy talks about the land of the living with "quick" and Ryan considers Les Misérables with "despot".

Also, if anyone reading this knows how we can get in touch with Nicolas Cage, let us know. This is a guest episode that *NEEDS* to happen.

Lexitecture is a podcast about words. In each episode, a Canadian (Ryan) and a Scot (Amy) each present their current favourite word and talk about its origins, current use, and try to puzzle out how it may have gone from A to B. If you love thinking and talking about words, word origins, or just random bits of head-scratching language trivia, this may be the show for you!

I wanted to like this being a massive etymology fan. The issue I had with it was how the female presenter interrupted the male presenter with her own stories, sometimes not even relevant to the word discussed. I just couldn't get into it due to that. So probably won't listen to subsequent episodes. Sorry.
