Language and Linguistics Podcast (Successor to "World in Words")

Production of twenty-one original episodes of a podcast on language, Subtitle, and additional related programming.

The Linguistic Society of America (LSA) requests a Production Grant of $199,330 over 12 months in support of Subtitle, a podcast project focusing on language. Subtitle is the successor to The World in Words, the recipient of three NEH production grants. This grant would support 20 original podcasts, each with a duration of 20-25 minutes, culminating in a mini-series of six episodes entitled How We Speak. In addition, the nationally-distributed radio program, Here & Now (WBUR/NPR) would broadcast shorter versions (3-7 minutes) of most of the podcast episodes. The grant would also support Subtitle’s online activity, with particular emphasis on social media conversations aimed at engaging a general audience.
