Rosie, are you ready?

ROSIE DUPONT: Oh my gosh, I am so ready.

JOY DOLO: Which of these three is a real instrument? OK, a baritone pumpkin, a pipsissewa, or a carnyx?

ROSIE DUPONT: These are so cool. So baritone pumpkin-- baritone is a low voice. I definitely can't reach that range, but a baritone pumpkin would be a big pumpkin. I think a deep-voiced pumpkin.


ROSIE DUPONT: But I don't think it's an instrument because it sounds like it's a pumpkin, not an instrument.

JOY DOLO: To hear more, head to to subscribe. It's $4 a month or $36 for the whole year. This game will be waiting for you once you subscribe to the feed. Again, that's Thanks so much for supporting our shows. Bye.
