You're Saying It Wrong
New episodes available on alternate Fridays
- Hosted by Fletcher Powell
From KMUW Studios, You're Saying It Wrong is a podcast that looks at what we get wrong — and what we sometimes get right — when it comes to this English language. Hosted by KMUW's Fletcher Powell, each episode features a conversation with the sister and brother who wrote the book on it. Literally. You're Saying It Wrong: A Pronunciation Guide to the 150 Most Commonly Mispronounced Words and Their Tangled Histories of Misuse is by Kathryn Petras and Ross Petras. (Or as we like to call them, Kathy and Ross.)
Each episode Kathy and Ross send a word to Fletcher, and then they convene over the airwaves to hear him pronounce it. Sometimes he gets it right. And sometimes they get to say, "You're Saying It Wrong."
