Getting Our Claws Into Season 2

Dave: "That would be "Gossip Girl'."

Me, on my bike, outloud: "WOW!"

You learn something new everyday: In 40+ years on earth I don't think I have ever heard 'dour' spoken before, and until today would have rhymed it with 'sour' or 'power.'

Dave’s Gossip Girls guess goes down as one of the best/worst ways I’ve had to explain to my co-workers that I’m listening to a podcast in my tiny Bluetooth earbud and that’s why I yelled “NO WAY” and laughed like a loon in my office. 

Hat tip good sir!

I've always heard it rhyming with "sour" too.

I think either is okay.

I was very happy to hear you pronounce it as 'dooer', @Sarah D. Bunting. That's the way I was taught to pronounce it, but more and more these days I hear people saying 'dower', probably because it looks like 'sour'. (BTW, the 'dooer' pronunciation is really fun to say with a Scottish accent!)
