  • Video: South Carolinians really are sloooow talkers, study finds

    Is it really true? Do South Carolinians, and southerners in general, talk slower than the rest of the country? Yes, according to a new study by Seattle-based analytics firm Marchex (Nasdaq: MCHX). To complile its recently released list of the fastest, and slowest, talking states in America, Marchex used its "Call DNA" technology -- analyzing things like rate of speech, holds times, and silences -- on call recordings between 2013 and 2015. See if you can guess who in this video hails from the Palmetto State.
