Accentricity

Learn about the link between language and identity and explore "people's everyday linguistic experiences," with Accentricity. Sociolinguistics researcher and educator Sadie Durkacz Ryan created the podcast, which is edited by John McDiarmid with music by Seb Philp. Through its six episodes (and three bonus installments), the show explores questions such as, "Why do we love some accents and hate others?" and "Does learning a new language really teach you to think differently?" Episodes are about 30 minutes in length and can be found at the link above or on your favorite listening platform. The site also has a blog, photo gallery, and teaching resources. The teaching resources section is great for linguistics and language arts educators, as it provides discussion prompts and activities that build off podcast episodes. All the episodes were released in 2019 and 2020, and readers can stay up-to-date on the podcast by following @accentricitypod on Twitter or @accentricity.podcast on Instagram.
