Renee: “I don’t think the little one knows words yet.”
Joe: “No he doesn’t. He’s three months old.”

With our youngest studio audience member present (along with his mom and dad), Joe (not Abraxas) Mecca explores words that are difficult for some people to pronounce or say aloud, New York regional dialects (Brooklyn vs. Rochester), Renee’s metropolitan accent, the role of language as an incomplete way to communicate, the potentcy we levy on some words, and misrepresenting ethnicity for political gain. Special guests Don Curtain, Don Ngyuen, and Marc Berry weigh in.


‘Nuff said.
