Something Else You Probably Didn't Know About Me

I can't stand British accents. Given that I used to be an historian of Great Britain, this may sound surprising, but it is true. I hate all British accents (perhaps because I'm not particularly fond of the British as a people), but I particularly abhor the accents I hear on the BBC. Every morning at nine, my favorite radio station cuts to the BBC and I just have to turn it off. Today I'm listening to an episode from the Diane Rehm Show archives instead.

It just boggles the mind that you can't abide the sound of British people but you can happily listen to Diane Rehm's death rattle for hours on end.

So why the animosity toward the Brits?

Emily: I could not agree with David more. Perhaps your hearing needs assessing? EM
