Educational

I have listened to this podcast for ages. I always learn something, and there is a great mix of practical, technical and whimsical in her explanations and stories.

Great Podcast

I love listening to Mignon. I learn a lot and I enjoy the sound of her voice and the way she speaks and enunciates words. I also like that she recently pronounced Mackinac correctly.

Love Grammar Girl 🥰

I’ve been following Mignon for years. I appreciate her clear enunciation and varied modulation of her voice, and the thing I like most is that she's the first to call mea culpa on herself, then follows up with the correction. The English language is one of the most difficult to master. It demands constant study. Thank you, Mignon, for being a stable host of this sorely needed podcast.
