Old Kentucky Tales S3, Ep4: The Kentucky Accent Quiz (Well, It's Dialect, Actually)

In this episode of Old Kentucky Tales, Brent and Jason complete a dialect quiz from the New York Times and discuss the various phrases that people use around the United States.  Some will sound familiar and some are brand new.  The terms we all use define our dialectical region and this quiz then highlights in what parts of the country that term is most often spoken.  Not a typical episode, many of the possible quiz choices are hilariously unique and interesting.
