This is a podcast about talking. We are covering everything from accents and dialects to idioms, from slang to culture; basically anything related to communication or language is on the table. This podcast is meant to be lighthearted and funny. And who knows, maybe even educational.
Ep. 16 Spiders, Magpies, and Bogans. Oh My!
It's the Hannah episode! We find out how much she hates spiders and why magpies are the devil. Hannah also tries her hand at a Bogan accent which sounds *ahem * amazing. Plus how Australian is Hannah? Not much, but she does like dead horse.
Ep. 15 What Does a Speech Pathologist Do? With Genevieve Graham
We talk to speech pathologist, Genevieve Graham and learn what speech pathologists do plus tackle the common misconceptions of their roles. Genevieve discusses her hurdles dealing with Covid and working with children on the spectrum. In What’s the Word we find out that Hannah is sometimes "up and down like a bride’s nighty". Yikes!
Ep. 14 - From a Wee Little Town in Scotland with Special Guest Eilidh Cameron
Eilidh Cameron (pronounced Ay-lee) is a landscape photographer from a wee town in western Scotland, and joins us to talk about the Scottish accent, local ghost stories, and takes over What's the Word because she wasn't too scunnered with us quite yet..1:28 - say Hey-ee to Eilidh (Ay-lee)3:50 - Being a Scot-ographer6:43 - Haunting of the Handless Piper10:00 - Scottish misconceptions16:07 - Nessy18:35 - What's the Word
Ep. 13 Linguistics for Dummies with Special Guest Juliane Bilotta
In today episode we sat down with avid TikToker and linguist, Juliane Bilotta, who holds a masters degree in linguistic anthropology and is currently working on her Ph.D. Wow! We ask the real questions like what is linguistics, what are allophones, and what’s the deal with vocal fry? We also have way too much fun in what’s the word and Hannah doesn't know what a dime is.
Ep. 12 - How Alaskan Are You?
This week we focus on Evan and what it was like to grow up in the state that’s the farthest north, east, and west, Alaska. We hear stories about smacking a moose, what you call several moose, how not to read a compass, plus we learn nothing about Australia’s snow region.
Ep. 11 Can I Speak with the Manager? With special guest Karen Cooper
Former co-worker and friend, Karen Cooper, joins us this week as we dissect the “Karen” slur. Our Karen is pretty far from the common memed Karens of the world but we discuss how all of us have a Karen within us, even men. Born and raised outside of Manhattan in a New Jersey suburb, Karen talks about the common misconceptions she dealt with. We also play a new game, and Hannah’s “What’s the Word” gets silly.

So much fun!
Hannah, Anna and Evan are hilarious! Love the concept behind the podcast and the What’s The Word at the end is really funny always. These three have a fantastic dynamic that leaves you wanting more.
This is such a great
The easy going podcast I’ve been looking for.
So many podcasts have become so heavy to listen to, it’s almost a chore. I’ve been looking for something fun that I can just listen to a bit worry about missing an episode or just have in the background. A friend recommended this, and it’s great. Love the presenters. Love the show. Keep them coming!
