I love your podcast and appreciate your informal but informed approach. Listening to episode 395, the English teacher in me bristled a bit, though.,
I value your thorough and focused efforts to inform your listeners.
I had to comment on the spellings and meanings of Calvary vs. cavalry. They are not spelled the same.
cavalry= battle troops on horseback
In modern usage, “Bring on the cavalry” means “Let’s go to war/battle” often meant metaphorically.
Calvary: (proper noun, capitalized) is, as you know, the name given in the Bible to the hill where Christ was crucified. In modern usage, it is often used to suggest someone’s being punished
The two words are sometimes confused. It’s the VAL vs. LVA segments of the words that are sometimes confusing. They are not interchangeable. Knowing you do have great religious knowledge, as you show in your segments in which you “dust off your degree,” I wanted to pass this along to you.
Your podcast is a regular on my listening list of atheist podcasts. Thank you so much for the time and obvious hard work you put into them!
Stay safe and keep podcasting your great show!
I am the person who wrote about the use of Calvary vs. cavalry in eisode 395. I have to blushingly take back everything I said in clarifying the difference for you. You did understand the difference; it was the people you talked about and quoted who got it wrong. Color me red with embarrassment!
