Idiumpire

If you like baseball – but wish the rules were more confusing and clearly made up on the spot – then this episode is a home run. If you actually hope to learn anything about idiom etymology, this one’s probably a swing and a miss.

Dead Ringer

This episode is a dead ringer for a funny, educational, and interesting podcast. It contains none of those positive attributes but it sure looks like it would.

On the Wagon

If you are abstaining from listening to podcasts this episode would be a good time to fall off the wagon.

Is the title of our inaugural episode a reference to the idiom that we actually discuss, or simply a red herring?
