  1. IFTTT is pronounced as though it rhymes with “gift.” Zapier is pronounced as though it rhymes with “happier.” Brooks pronounced Zapier correctly throughout this episode, but he said “I-F-T-T-T” every time. Pronunciation is critical for a podcaster.

    IFTTT is a gift. Zapier makes people happier. :)
