Favourite Grammar Podcast

In this podcast Mignon Fogerty talks about writing, history, rules and cool stuff (c)
Not a day goes by that I don’t listen to at least one episode of the podcast 🤍 I highly recommend this for both native and non-native speakers, writers and readers, and literally anyone interested in the English language. My favourite part of the show is the familects (a blend of the words ‘family’ and ‘dialect’) :)
Thank you, Mignon! Keep up the great work and lots of love from Katy, Russia

This is amazing podcast!

I love this podcast! It often brings in very interesting topics explaining the words and expressions from historical point with scientific approach gathering data from many sources. Wonderful example is the geek 676 - The Language of 'Game of Thrones' episode describing all those languages (Tongues) used in the show. You can listen to it commuting or read the text on the web site on your choice!
Many thanks to you for the amazing work, GrammarGirl!
