    14: Write this down! The Origins of the alphabet and keyboards


    If you think you know why we have the QWERTY keyboard, you're probably believing a myth! And have you ever wondered why the alphabet is in the order that it is? On this episode, Olivia and Jessie tackle two of the biggest systems we use constantly and take for granted every day: the alphabet and the modern keyboard.
