In this week's episode, we take a trip through the crazy and confusing world of accents and dialects in both the U.S. and Germany. What is the difference between an accent and a dialect? Is double negation actually incorrect? What's the proper way to refer to a "carbonated beverage" in the US? And what do you call the last piece of bread in a loaf? These are just some of the questions and topics that we discuss in our first full episode recorded from two different continents. Also, make sure to listen until the end to get the details on how you could be included in an upcoming episode!
