Jonah Raydio #42: Crooked Episode, Crooked Episode
By Katie Levine on November 7, 2013
DISCLAIMER : In today’s episode of Jonah Raydio, co-host and lovable cut-up Neil “Nails” Mahoney refers to a collection of art zines by an artist by the name of Mike Giant. In describing the two-word titles of these zines, he used the word “Solipsism” to describe how if you swapped the first sound of the words, it would make a funnier title, i.e. “Flood Bart” becomes “Blood Fart”. This incorrect usage of “solipsism” was due to Mr. Mahoney’s nursing of a baby bottle full of Bourbon. Solipsism is the philosophical/metaphysical concept that one cannot be certain anything exists outside your own mind. The word Mr. Mahoney meant to use was “spoonerism.” We regret that this distraction may prevent some listeners from enjoying today’s episode, or worse, promote the incorrect usage of “solipsism,” but we we will strive to be better podcasters, men, and U.S. citizens in the future.
