    just listened to your latest podcast – it was great, except the whole “Zee” value thing… We’re Canadian — the last letter of our alphabet it a “Zed”. geez! Even my four-year-old twins know this and can point out that Sesame Street was wrong when they say “zee”.

    sorry – pet peeve rant is now over…

  2. Adam says:

    Ha. Sorry I interchangeably used Zee and Zed. Since the original research was done by Americans this seemed like the correct usage…

  3. Nicola says:

    Great show!

    One comment though… 1992 was twenty years ago ;-)

  4. Adam says:

    Chris, check out the latest episode where I talk a bit about Canadians and the letter Ze(e|d).

      LOL – I had to come back in and check for other comments once I read the title and had a quick laugh that it became a topic. I’m currently listening. Thanks.-Chris
