Before you write Steve Jobs to complain about this podcast, let us say a quick word in our defense. After all, it isn't as if we said to our voice actors, "write us a dialogue about baby names, but don't forget to stuff a few severed body parts in there." The ear worked its way in more naturally. "It's really the elephant in the room when it comes to this lesson," as Brendan said coming out of the studio. "How could we avoid the subject when the dialogue paints such a gruesome picture all on its own?"And it's true: one of the characters in today's Chinese dialogue is an ideograph of a human hand holding a severed ear. Once you know which character it is, we're fairly sure you won't forget it. In the meantime, if you think you can spot it, click through to our text page and try to pick out the culprit before Brendan and Echo identify it for you in the podcast.
