Today we learned that one of the plural forms of podium is “podia.” I knew this intuitively, but Amanda made me look it up to confirm, as she was a nonbeliever.

We came across this word in the NYT Wednesday crossword (which we sadly lost) as the answer to the clue “conductors’ platforms.” Pumpkin pirate was probably the best answer in that puzzle.
