PINcast Ep. 9: Reporting on Newtown, and exploring identity through regionalism, accents and self-description

Filed by KOSU News in Public Insight Network.
December 22, 2012

In this episode of PINcast, we look at a few projects that explore identity — the identity of an individual, of a state, and of speech.

We also hear about reporting from some of our partner newsrooms in the wake of last week’s shootings in Connecticut.

KUHF’s “Is Texas in the South” project can be found here, and KPCC’s “California accent” project can be found here.

If you have any feedback or ideas for stories or projects we should include in future PINcast episodes, email me at
