The Brian Lehrer Show

January 28, 2011


Russ & Daughters’ Niki Russ Federman was on The Brian Lehrer Show to discuss the semantics of smoked salmon, the lexicon of lox, and the State of the Union address. 

"Ben Zimmer, 'On Language' columnist for The New York Times and executive producer of Visual Thesaurus and Vocabulary.com, takes a closer look at some of the words and phrases that the president used in his State of the Union speech. Also, we get more insight into the president's smoked salmon joke from Niki Russ, fourth-generation co-owner of the Lower East Side fish shop staple Russ & Daughters, who explains the difference between smoked salmon and lox."
