His controversial conviction rested largely on two pieces of rickety evidence: the gunshot wound he sustained the night of the murder and the IWW membership card in his wallet. The writer William Adler has uncovered evidence debunking the case against Hill. He'll join Doug to talk about his book, <em>The Man Who Never Died</em>.

Have you seen a cougar “ki’uhn” in the “mou’uhns” of “Lay-uhn?” If so, you speak like a Utahn, especially if you call fried bread a “scone.” In the age of globalization and cultural flattening, regional accents and vocabularies are thriving, especially in urban areas.
