Love the show!

In Karen's quiz on the origins of company names, the language for the work "eidos" was given as Latin. It is actually Greek, from the word "eidos", meaning "form or image".

As a general guide, nouns ending in "-os" are Greek, and those ending in "-us" are Latin.

Keep up the great work!

Just listened to this episode and I wanted to say that I waste a lot of time on audacity changing the pitch on songs! Landslide by Fleetwood Mac is a really great one. And the singer from Dashboard Confessional sounded bizarrely like Miley Cyrus to me when I pitched up on their song "Dusk and Summer." Have a great day, I love listening to you guys. <3
