      As with typos and proofreading, sometimes a speaker does not always
      realize they have misspoken a word or name. If they're the only person in
      the room who might be aware of the error when considered objectively, who
      is going to know to correct it?

      Why not just email Michael and ask him? It's not like he's unreachable.
