This is Potato Potato. Each episode we’ll invite a mystery guest to tell us a story. Then we’ll have a linguist try to guess where our storyteller comes from. And maybe along the way we’ll learn something about the English language.

In this episode: Nisse Greenberg shares a memorable accident and linguist Dan Duncan guesses.
