Episode 7 of Randy Kindig's Floppy Days Vintage Computing Podcast, entitled, Vintage Computer Festival Midwest 8.0, gives shout-outs to two of the upcoming books I've co-authored, CoCo: The Colorful History of Tandy's Underdog Computer and Vintage Game Consoles: An Inside Look at Apple, Atari, Commodore, Nintendo, and the Greatest Gaming Platforms of All Time. Though Kindig understandably butchers both my (it's actually pronounced "Low-joo-diss") and Boisy Pitre's last names (it's actually pronounced "Pete"), the mention at - approximately the 17:58 mark - is much appreciated. Kindig should also be receiving review copies of both books for future episodes of his podcast, which is a regular listen for me. Check out the episode here.

I always pronounce it Lo-GWEE-dee-cheh.

To be fair, it's probably how your ancestors spoke it.

Well, I certainly prefer the Italian way of saying it, but sadly, it was Americanized in an odd way (it apparently means "The Judge" in Italian). I never bothered to change it back, obviously. I've never been fond of the difficulty of my last name, but even though it's a relatively common last name, it still stands out enough I think for it to be more of a benefit most of the time than a liability.
