#27: It’s a 90s Podcast About Email Sign-Offs

DDD #27 It's a 90s Podcast About Email Sign-Offs
On this episode:
The crew addresses some recent listener critiques (ignore Linda’s sobbing). The OED adds “jagoff” to the dictionary, but they’re still jagoffs. We’re on our beanwater as we discuss regional slang terms on the cusp of extinction. “Biweekly” and “bimonthly” can mean the same thing because English makes no sense. Morgan and Linda complement each other, and sometimes even compliment each other. And we’re still searching for a solid email sign-off.
