Episode 002: The Letter B (April 19, 2016)

On this episode we flirt with the letter B. The letter B was part of the Phoenician alphabet more than 3000 years ago in 1000 BCE. At that time, the letter was called beth and looked a little different, but it made the sound of b and was second in the alphabet. The shape of the letter resembled the floor plan of a house, and the word beth meant “house.” In the current day the letter might recall Beiber, Booty, Beyonce, or Beetlejuice.
