I'm afraid the voice is so painful I was unable to listen to more than 20 seconds. How can the very simple word and be pronounced eeeeeeaaaaannnd ? How can this possibly be a diphthong?

Right - Harsh vocal quality to begin with notwithstanding, the inflection
evident in 'eeeaand' denotes hesitation-thinking-it-over-before-continuing
anywhere in North America...maybe like puees, que siempre me encanta el acento mexicano...

Here's a Mexican famous writer, Carlos Fuentes. His accent is a neutral Mexico City one.

Me costó un rato de buscar un acento de Arizona, pero no sé que nosotros sonamos diferente al otros de los EEUU (southwest). No creo que hay un acento distinto aquí , o quizás yo suele de eso y no puedo diferenciarlo de otros.

I searched for a while for an accent from here, but I don't really think there is anything that distinguishes us here in Arizona from most parts of the southwestern United States. Or maybe I'm just so used to it that it sounds normal!
