A Way with Words, which receives no funding from NPR or KPBS, is more than a public radio program about language. We believe that people are naturally curious about the world around them, and that learning about language is a powerful means of helping them connect with each other and communicate more effectively. Our goal is to change the way people think and talk about language -- bridging the gap between academics and the lay public, making scholarly research accessible, and providing that information to as many people as possible in a way that entertains as well as inspires.
Founded and nurtured here in San Diego, A Way with Words is now broadcast to listeners in 28 states, plus Mexico and Canada, reaching an estimated quarter-million listeners a week. Wayword, Inc., which independently produces and distributes the program free of charge, is supported by, and partners with, organizations and individuals who believe in lifelong learning and better human communication.
