Do you want to be on the radio?

We’re looking for contestants for our new language quiz on A Way With Words, broadcast from KPBS in San Diego to California, Wisconsin, Kentucky, and around the world via streaming and podcast. The quiz is a short, playful game about words and their meanings. Plus, there may be a little prize in it for you. : )

To be considered as a candidate for the quiz, just send a message to Include your full name, city and state, daytime telephone number, the best time to reach you, and include a few lines about your favorite slang word, new word, or colloquial expression.
