“The NPR Voice” – The New Valley Girl

Play

Break out the artisanal cheese! Your sneaking suspicion that everyone at NPR sounds the same is dead on!

There is a developing affectation coming from NPR. Just like the Valley Girl in the 1990s or the old-time radio voice, the NPR voice is the new accent of the elite. Whether you’re eating your Serial or living This American Life, you won’t need a Radio Lab to hear what we’re talking about.

Blurred Lines Verdict: Rory’s Rant

We had to talk about the Blurred Lines verdict that came out yesterday. So this is a bonus-bonus episode.  WARNING: Rory had to rant a little. For another assessment, take a look at the article from Future of Music Coalition.

Note: Rory’s rant includes some errors … Robin Thicke’s interview was in Rolling Stone, not GQ.

Rory and Tristan Shields

For some crazy reason, our parents gave us Irish names. Rory’s middle name is “Mickeen.” Our other brother is named Devin Patrick. Tristan’s middle name is Dailey. We love Irish music. So, in celebration of St. Paddy’s (St. Patty’s) Day, we sing a bit on this podcast and we share some serious stealing from the Emerald Isle. Hope you have a great St. Patrick’s Day!
