In this episode, we hit a momentous and arbitrary-base-10-numbering-system milestone of 100 episodes! Amy gets cheesy with “friend” and Ryan asks for a sub with “surrogate” but the REAL story is all the amazing people who contributed clips, and to whom we are extremely grateful:

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!
