Fascinating, often funny, intelligent, and packed full of information about linguistics that I've never even thought about before. The interviews are well done.
Carrie and Megan shine a light on the unappreciated voices in the world. In a world of prescriptivists, they show different voices are no less good than others. Breaking the strangle hold of "standard American English", they show how other flavors of English speak about who we are. We could all take their advice to not be an a-hole.
