Do You Have A Connecticut Accent? MP3

One of the ongoing debates in American sociolinguistics concerns the so-called Ocracoke brogue, a dialect from the barrier islands off the cost of North Carolina. You could probably throw in the dialect of Smith Island off the coast of Maryland.  There are people who claim that these dialects represent a closer approximation of Elizabethan English, the accent spoken by Shakespeare's actors, tha...

    Colin McEnroe Show: Philippe Petit & Paul Winter Discuss Creativity MP3

    Is creativity an act or an attitude? In Man on Wire, Philippe Petit, the high wire artist who walked between the twin towers of the World Trade Center in 1974, says, “To me it’s so simple that life should be lived on the edge of life. You have to exercise rebellion, to refuse to taper yourself to rules, to refuse your own success, to refuse to repeat yourself, to see every day, every year, ever...

    Tony Danza Wants To 'Apologize To Every Teacher' He Ever Had MP3

    Today's show started with the fact that Tony Danza was available and willing to talk to us.  Tony Danza is one of those people who has been around long enough so that several generations have separate reasons for getting excited about him. There's "Taxi" and "Who's the Boss." But he's also an internet meme in a way that's very difficult to explain.    When he his d...

    Colin McEnroe Show: But Wait, There's More! MP3

    There's something funny about some infomercials. We wasted a certain amount of office time today studying a kind of curved stick that one attaches toilet paper to so that one can extend one's reach.  And there's something vaguely pornographic about other infomercials, like the Tiddy Bear and, for that matter, the Shake Weight.    But the other side of As Seen on TV product is the wo...

    Colin McEnroe Show: Pi - A Window On Infinity MP3

    It's Pi Day, and we have to ask, can numbers be sexy? Tom Stoppard's play Arcadia is being revived on Broadway right now. I saw it Friday night. Much of the play is about a young math genius, a girl living 200 years ago, who writes in her notebook:   "I, Thomasina Coverly, have found a truly wonderful method whereby all the forms of nature must give up their numerical secrets and dr...

    Colin McEnroe Show: Whisk(e)y! MP3

    One of the tropes I always wonder about is the decanter of whiskey. I am 57 years old, and never in my life, during a personal or business conversation, has a person strode across the room to the whiskey decanter, poured one for each of us and returned with the two tumblers. But in movies and television, it happens all the time. Most of all on "Mad Men," but before that there were soap operas...
