Wow this makes me smarter. Ok but I’m a little confused at the ending...the semiotist shouts? Or the podcast host? I thought the thing signified is greater than the sign...if the host shouts that it seems to make him in agreement with the semiotist, so why the anger...at first I thought the host was being more insightful to shout basically why enjoy all these signs of romance rather than the real thing? But then the wording is how can the sign ever be inferior to what it signifies...meaning it’s not inferior...so I’m confused. But if semiotist shouted then makes sense, it fits his delusion. But last person subject is who the pronoun signifies, “He shouted” which would be the host...so who shouts?
