We chat with Johnny Megahan (@johnmegahan) about language, commit message etiquette, and we finally find out what the deal is with Alien's facehuggers.
We talk about something that's very close to our nerdy, nerdy hearts: theme parks. Oh, and a little bit about Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand, and Dolly Parton.
In this episode, Michael and I drink a delicious Dogpatch cocktail, and talk about linguistics, text messaging, emoji, and then british vs american humour. Let's go!
Charlotte drops by to talk about The Oscars and drink a French 75 with us. We review the movies up for best picture and also talk about Michael's Oscar Pool.
Michael makes Hampton a "Ruby Rocket" and then talk a bit about rockets, and a whole lot about the mid-90's TV show, The X-Files.
Hampton and Michael are joined by Orion Montoya. We drink a Last Word and talk about dictionaries, words, and finally learn how to pronounce lexicography.
