Funny, witty, and fascinating

Wonderful pod for the grammar nerds and nazis out there - and for anyone with an interest in etymology and the history of language.

I feel so isolated in my grammatical pedantry! So glad there are others who are fascinated with the English language and its rules and idiosyncrasies.
Thanks for your program.
