Episode 88 – All about name pronunciation. Is there a proper pronunciation? Jennifer and Mallory talk about how pronunciation can be geographic and ethnographic, and how mispronuncing names can be egregious and a form of aggression. We also read name stories from our fans on Reddit and Facebook,  report on the current celebrity baby news and take letters from our listeners.
