Rhetoric O Rama
A Podcast About All Things Rhetoric
Rhetoric-O-Rama is a fun and educational introduction to rhetoric by two college professors, Dr. David R. Dewberry and Dr. Tim "As Seen on TV" McGee (Tim was on Wheel of Fortune in the early 80s). Each episode features a discussion on some aspect of rhetoric, some untranslated Latin or Greek, and then some tasty extra bonus content: a fallacy, a historical tidbit, or a stylistic device to help improve your own rhetoric. Whether you listen to have fun or to learn the differences between Hermagoras of Temnos and Hermogenes of Tarsus, we hope you enjoy our podcast and support our made up sponsors.

[S2E6] What is Hagiography?

with Dr. David R. Dewberry & Dr. Tim "As Seen on TV" McGee

In this episode, we discuss hagiography, the holy writing about saints (the religious kind, not the New Orlean’s football team). In the end, the lesson is that biography is to exposition as hagiography is to emulation. How about that?! We also discuss how Tim canonized Dave as St. David of Dewberry for a $5 cheeseburger.
