The Word You Use To Say What Stuff A Thing Is


NAMES! You probably have one. In this episode, Drew & Natalie talk about your name (probably) and a bunch of other peoples’ names. Natalie explains why she doesn’t have a name, and Drew plays a name quiz that you can play along with as you listen. We also have dozens, maybe thousands, of name-based facts.

We also mentioned that it’s illegal in Sweden to name your son Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116, which came up because a couple in Sweden tried to name their son exactly this word. (You’ll have to listen to the episode to find out what happened.)
