Episode 1: Nice Serendipity
In the first ever episode of Lexitecture, Amy takes a trip to the Isle of Serendip to find out what you call it when you find something you weren’t even looking for. Ryan, meanwhile, explores the relation between “nice” and “science” and traces the history of a surprisingly old way to call someone stupid.
Lexitecture is a podcast about words. 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!
