You pronounced the author’s first name incorrectly! It is A (short a) lee key. If you are going to do a podcast, make sure you pronounce things right.
(I know how to pronounce her name because she is a personal friend.)

Thank you for your feedback and for listening to the show, Kim. A review of Aliki’s biography on the Harper Collins website and the book give no indication on how to pronounce her name. The mispronunciation was clearly not a sign of disrespect as we love her work (as you can tell from the review).

Our sincere apologies to Aliki.
