28. The Mid-Atlantic Accent
Here it is! The breakdown of the Mid-Atlantic accent we've been promising you for MONTHS. We have nailed down exactly what the term used to mean versus what it means now, as well as how to do it - and why it might be time to consider adding it to your repertoire. Huge thanks to the ear bogglingly informed accent coach's accent coach Erik Singer for his contribution, as well as super-pros Juliette Gray, Julie Ann Dean, Peter Baker and Patrick Poletti for sending us their interpretation of the Mid-Atlantic brief.
