My Name Is My Name!

Why do we obsess about our names as much as we do? Well, it’s because they have to represent our past, and our hopes for the future, and all our multiple identities, and, and, and … whew! In this episode, Amy and Rebecca dig into American naming traditions with The Baby Name Wizard, Laura Wattenberg. Also, cameos by Dinner Party Download co-host Rico Gagliano and Mash-Up contributor Finn Paul! What’s your Starbucks name? 

Bey would like you to say her name.
