‘In a Manner of Speaking’ podcast

In a Manner of SpeakingSince 2018, In a Manner of Speaking has been entertaining and inspiring listeners each month with its discussions of everything related to the spoken word. Created and hosted by IDEA Founder and Director Paul Meier, and co-produced and occasionally co-hosted by IDEA Executive Editor Cameron Meier, the podcast tackles topics close to the heart of IDEA fans, such as accents, dialects, linguistics, film, and theatre.

Each episode features the “Guess that Accent” quiz, in which Paul plays a snippet from a recording of an IDEA subject and challenges listeners to guess where that person grew up. (The answer is revealed on the following month’s episode.)
