But one of the most telling things about you is something you can’t even see, yet it defines you more than you realize.

Featuring Hollywood Dialect Coach Erik Singer and Linguistics Professor Dr. Walt Wolfram. Twenty Thousand Hertz is hosted by Dallas Taylor and produced out of the studios of Defacto Sound. Consider supporting the show at donate.20k.org Episode transcript, music, and credits can be found here: https://www.20k.org/episodes/accents
