Well, the emergency was averted. Mona and Jay managed to record their discussion without the guiding hand of their producer. Kathy Griffin, Oslo Freedom Forum, Trump relatives, Russia, violence, campuses, pronouns. Not to be missed.

Music is from Dmitri Shostakovich’s Jazz Suite, waltz number 2.

    Hi Mona!

    Just heard the Podcast. It was really good, as usual. When is your book coming out? I love the title. I imagine it touches on how the latter-day feminists have only confused today’s woman? To me, that is so sad!!

    Jay, Mona had it right. The “o” is supposed to be nasalized, so that it’s realized as an “n” before the labio-dental “v”.

    What is this referring to? I don’t remember.

    This was Jay correcting your pronunciation, “confefe” to “covfefe”. You can’t just go by the spelling. For instance, I never say the name of a composer out loud until I hear the announcer on the public radio station use it first.
