Practicing for the Spelling Bee? Grab an iPod

This weekend the New Hampshire State Spelling Bee takes place in Concord; NHPR is a sponsor of the event, in which the Granite State’s top spellers hope to make short work of long words the rest of us would probably trip over.

Brooke Aumand is a student in Walpole, and she’s looking to spell her way to represent New Hampshire in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington DC. She talks with All Things Considered host Brady Carlson about how she got interested in spelling and how an iPod helps her study new words ahead of a competition.
