In this episode, Amy delves into the cold and wet with "winter", and Ryan learns what happens when you combine a Greek letter with a sort of early missile with "Christmas".

Lexitecture is a podcast about etymology (the linguistics study of the origin and history of words). In each episode, a Canadian (Ryan) and a Scot (Amy) each present their current favourite word and talk about its origins, current use, and try to puzzle out how it may have gone from A to B. If you love thinking and talking about words, word origins, or just random bits of head-scratching language trivia, this may be the show for you!
