Hey I love you guys' show! I just discovered your podcast and I'm addicted. I just wanted to say that I think you guys should do more phrase etymology. I love it when you guys mention the origin of random things, and I've always found phrase and saying origins to be really interesting; like where "cold turkey" or "paint the town red" came from. And also, I would guess that you guys have heard of it, but in case you haven't, is an awesome trivia quiz site that you should check out!

I love you guys, especially Karen. Just want you to know there's a 60 something gal who loves your show. It's not just for the youngsters, but for anyone who likes trivia. Any trivia older than the 1980's drives me crazy 'cause you guys don't know the answers, ha ha. Been listening since almost the beginning and haven't missed a show. Keep up the good work.
