Alphabet 2.0

Hey if you’ve ever thought “I wish the alphabet had emoji, stage directions, was written on musical staves, was possibly a spiral or rebus and all of the letters were replaced with numbers”, are you in my house? Are you spying on me? Are you reading this over my shoulder right now? Because that’s what this episode is about. We solve pesky problems that have plagued the original dumb alphabet since time immemorial, like the fact that some letters are indistinguishable from each other, a sloppy encoding that you’d think the Romans or Greeks or somebody would have noticed.
