What does it take to be an interpreter?

Listen to this short Mp3 to hear the answer in a wonderful little gem of a radio program devoted to language.

"Talkin' About Talk is a collection of fascinating insights into language: a series of 52 little essays--conversational in tone, light and anecdotal in style--that encourage language study and invite listeners to look further into the subject of each essay. The series, part of the 2005: The Year of Languages celebration, was co-sponsored by the College of Charleston (SC) and the National Museum of Language. The material was written by a wide-ranging group of experts, including some of the most well-known linguists in America. The architect and voice of Talkin' about Talk is Dr. Rick Rickerson, professor Emeritus at the College of Charleston. Brief biographies of the authors can be found on the College of Charleston website:"
