I returned to my Bredemarket podcast after a brief absence and recorded this episode late this morning. While recording the episode, I made reference to the Mayo Clinic.
After recording and publishing the episode, I began wondering if I had pronounced “Mayo” correctly. When I spoke the word during the episode, it sounded more like an ancient civilization than a condiment.
So, because the Internet knows everything, I searched for the proper pronunciation of “Mayo Clinic” and located this YouTube video.
Yep…it’s a condiment.
And this was not a simple five second video. The video is a minute long and constantly repeats “Mayo Clinic,” reminding me over and over of my mistake.
And that, my friends, is how you can identify a writer. Writers can’t pronounce things.
