Lexitecture

In this episode, Amy gives the supernatural a lot of credence with "superstitious" and Ryan revels in the "opportunity" to hear Andy Hollandbeck talk about the nudity of the "gymnasium".

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!
