I say bio-pic. biographical picture.
My podcasts and people I know say bi-opic and it makes me second guess everything I've ever known when I hear it.

It's not a word I say often but I've heard it as "bi-opic" more than "bio-pic".

Correct pronunciation would be bio-pic as you said its short for biographical picture. I hear bi-opic... makes me think you talking about two lenses or two eyes. bi-optic or something.

Agreed! The first time I heard someone say bi-opic out loud I thought they were talking about vision stuff.

I don't understand why you would say it the way you say it.

Because it's a biographical moving picture
