It didn't bother me until recently (some people have much shorter fuses) but...

Leading off a sentence with "So."

I understand its role. Same as 

Well,...
Okay,...
See,...
You know,...
Like,...
Um...
The thing is,...

 
And we'll all get used to it so it's not so obvious but for the last couple of months you couldn't annoy me more if you snapped me in the eyeball with a rubber band. Okay that's a lie. But still.

Every time NPR interviews another reporter about something (or less frequently one of their guests), the studio will say,
"our gardening reporter Cindy Cabbage is here to tell us about blight. What's the deal with blight, Cindy?"
"So. Blight is this thing, that happens?"
"And is it always going to be a thing?"
"So we don't know, but probably (vocal fry)"
"What can we do about blight?"
"So, experts suggest instant potatoes ew."

 
Been thinking about that, now that you brought it up. It's not so much the use of the word as much as the overuse of it. I recall hearing an interview on the radio one day and every statement from the interviewee started with, "So". Annoying as hell. No different, I guess, than "Well" or "You know". Especially when it's not well or I don't know.

There certainly has been a marked increase in the last 2 or 3 years. I just think it's kind of unimaginative at its worst so I suppose its not really harmful. It seems to be the latest example of captive over usage of a word; almost involuntary and without thinking. Slang seems to get a pass in that category. Maybe a course of study in descriptive broadcast journalism could be created. There are plenty of examples of the past to listen to and learn from. The radio days gave us so much; Red Barber could put you in the stands for instance. Imagine how crazy it would be if print media used the word 'so' at every possible bridge. Anyway...

His footnotes, caveats, interpretations are pretty good. But it's definitely "in vogue" right now. The statistics probably can't discern between a legitimate use "So the books don't get wet, please take them indoors" or in place of "therefore," etc. and just "So. The President is in France." Anyway. Give so a rest.

How do you ask that question without using an interrogative? It doesn't seem to fit with your other examples.

Or mayhaps I'm confused - was this more about the responses?

 
Yes, it was supposed to be a back-and-forth conversation there. I tried to get away with doing the conversation Roddy Doyle-style.
