If you’ve ever been interested in working in the area of accent modification, have I got an episode for you! Tom Shull (@MrShullsClass) is back to talk about this very topic. What makes Tom so impressive is that his accent modification business is a part-time one. Like myself, Tom’s full-time gig is in the public school system (please listen to our last talk about Donor’s Choose if you haven’t already).
In today’s episode we cover:
- What sparked Tom’s interest in accent modification.
- The importance of phonetic transcription skills.
- Having an ear for dialects.
- Code switching.
- And more!

Oh yes, that podcast about the guy who cleans up crime scenes was in fact featured on This American Life (not for the squeamish).
Finally, the name of the famous dialect coach to the stars was Sam Chwat.
