RhetoricLee Speaking

By Lee M Pierce

If Ben Stein and the Kardashians had a baby that were raised by Janeane Garofalo in a recording studio, you’d have RhetoricLee Speaking, a podcast analyzing cliches in culture, politics, and whatever was on Netflix at 3am. Join hostess with the mostess and professor of Rhetorical Communication, Lee Pierce, to learn the ins and outs of this thing called rhetoric--why certain uses of language have different effects than others and how the cliches we use close our minds off from other ways of thinking.
