podcast #19: English-only golf, Orwell’s blog and writing in a foreign language

Two newsy items top the podcast: Wasilla, Alaska, hometown of John McCain’s running mate Sarah Palin, and the LGPA’s decision to ban profesional female golfers who don’t speak English. Then we have a report from the World’s technology reporter Clark Boyd on George Orwell’s “blog” followed by a segment on two Bosnian novelists – Aleksandar Hemon and Sasa Stanisic¬†who write in foreign languages. Finally, we wrap our ears around everyone’s favorite Icelandic insult, courtesy of Stephen Dodson. Listen on iTunes or here.
