Fiat Kory & Steve!

I love podcasts because listening brings you closer to a topic and the people who talk to you about it. Fiat Lex draws you into the details of lexicography, and Kory and Steve make the harmless drudgery come alive. Their passion, knowledge, and fine sense of fun add up to a 5-star podcast. For the language geek as well as for anyone who ever wondered who in God’s name writes dictionaries.

Funny and Smart

If I were at a cocktail party, I would spend all my time with Kory and Steve. They are brilliant, entertaining, and lots of fun. For anybody who enjoys language, and even for those who don't, Fiat Lex is a pleasure.

Great Podccast for Word Nerds

A friend recently posted a Facebook entry on the "i before e" conundrum and I found this podcast after rediscovering Kory's Ask the Editor discourse on the subject. Thanks for being informative and entertaining so even engineers can understand.

fun and fascinating

If you have even the slightest curiosity about how words come into being, evolve, and are put out to pasture, you will love this podcast. If you have no intersest in any of those things, it's possible that you will only like it. I can't imagine a response other than those two.

My new favorite podcast!

I randomly grabbed Kory’s book while wandering a Barnes & Noble and was immediately hooked. After following her on twitter, this podcast popped up. I love it! It’s informative and fun. The content could be assumed to be very dry, but Kory and Steve are fun together and I never leave an episode without multiple chuckles. I recommend this podcast to anyone looking to learn about the English language!

If you have ever picked up a dictionary, enjoyed what you found inside, and wondered to yourself how such a marvel came to be, then this is the podcast for you!Kory and Steve are easy going and make the material accessible. They clearly enjoy each other’s company and talking shop as evidenced by the laughs and understanding vocal eye rolls they share.It’s like sitting around and being regaled with amusing anecdotes by your really smart friends.

Such a fun and informative podcast!

I am so glad that I recently discovered this podcast! I've listened to every episode, and I can never get enough listening to how certain fields work such as, of course, words, dictionaries, etc Kory and Steve are incredible to listen to, and I love coming away from each episode knowing that I learned something new. Tons of fun and well worth it!

Really Fun

This is my guilty geeky pleasure. Erudite, yet very accessible and a great listen.
