i love this podcast. if you're looking to understand all those two-dollar words in david rakoff's essays and appreciate a heartwarming lack of slickness and perfection, then this is the podcast for you. the host, ben, is adorable and unabashedly nerdy. he's the patron saint of my vocabulary. i think the only thing that would improve it is if every word was used in a sentence. this is dork chic at its finest.
