Greetings earthlings!

In our latest podcast, Martha muses about the "love dimple." You know, that little dent in your upper lip? It's called a "philtrum." The erotic origins of this word prove once again that etymology is nothing if not sexy. Listen here:

By the way, we're on the hunt for contestants for our "Slang This!" quiz. We'll find out on the air what you know about a couple of juicy slang terms. If you want to play, all you need to do is send us your full name, location, a daytime telephone number, and your favorite slang word.

In next week's podcast, Martha discusses Southern speech.

Let's close this brief missive with news: we plan to have brand-spanking-new one-hour episodes of the show in November.

Stay tuned!

Martha Barnette and Grant Barrett
