Episode #11: The Lightning Bug and the Lightning

This is What is in a Name

“The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter–it’s the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.” –Mark Twain

Producers Aaron Shapiro and Emily LaDue bring us a complex and fascinating local story about the attempted renaming of a South Philly neighborhood and the powerful theoretical implications that go along with it. It’s a blend of documentary, journalism, and theory that perfectly captures what communication – and a scholarly communication podcast – is all about.
