On today’s episode we are talking about how we talk to our furry friends. If you have a fur baby and talk to them in a fun baby voice you’re not alone. We talk about why we humans do this and why our animals respond to it. Hannah shows off her Scottish accent in this week’s What’s this Word. And we have a phone number where you can text and call us! Listen to get the digits.

We’re back with a brand new season! While we might be a little rusty, we’ve got a great episode for you. Evan has big news! Hannah’s What’s the Word mostly stumps Anna and Evan. Plus we dive into the viral TikTok that’s trying to take down Billie Eilish because of a supposed racist accent. We also dive into the fake accents by other A-listers like Madonna and Lindsay Lohan

In this episode we talk to Mario Orallo about the ups and downs of improv and how his theater, Jet City Improv, has adapted live performances online. We also play a few improv games with him, much to Hannah's chagrine.

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.

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! 

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-ographer
6:43 - Haunting of the Handless Piper
10:00 - Scottish misconceptions
16:07 - Nessy
18:35 - What's the Word

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. 

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.

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. 

In our 10th episode we're joined by fellow podcasters and Boston natives, Laney and Kelly from ...And Now We Said It. We put them to the test and find out how “Boston” they really are. We chat about what it means to become a voice actress, what Mass-holes are, and Anna spills some Tom Brady tea.
