Weirdly Worldly is a podcast and long-form conversation.
We are three TESOL students who frequently find ourselves discussing world events and happenings. Since our lives revolve around language while at school, it only makes sense to discuss accents in our first episode.
The most recent claim on the origins of the Australian accent says that drunken settlers are to blame. As language students, we dissect the validity of this argument and bring to light some other ideas.
