Talk About Talk is devoted to talking about talk--to discussing communication in all of its guises--from face-to-face, to electronic--verbal and nonverbal--interpersonal, public, private, persuasive, funny, sad, good, bad--satirical, imperial, lyrical, tyrannical, mystical, proverbial, ugly, plain, and beautiful--ironic, iconic, laconic--Platonic, Sophistic, Eristic--caustic, sweet, neat, and banal. We talk about talk, and others’ talk about talk, from all time-periods and as many cultural perspectives as we are able to competently navigate. On most programs we interview scholars in the field of rhetoric and communication and talk about their talk about talk--their published research. In addition to discussions with guest scholars, some programs consist of discussions of broad questions pertinent to the field(s) of rhetoric and communication. Additional programs may consist of discussions and debates focusing on controversial issues operative in current public discourses. Talk About Talk is sponsored by the Colgate University Speaking Union/Student Lecture Forum and is broadcast live at 12:30-1:00 p.m. EST on Wednesdays on WRCU 90.1 FM.
