Grammar Girl is an excellent podcast for me to listen to because it is usually around 15 minutes long, so is easy to fit in each week. But you do need to concentrate. That 15 minutes is packed full of knowledge along with tools to help you remember various grammar tips.

Recent episodes have covered: Are sports team names singular or plural? Do you say your piece or say your peace? Barefaced and Baldfaced lies. Mixed Metaphors. Repetitive phrases. I could go on, and on, as the podcast is up to episode 622!

Even if you think you know all of this stuff I’m sure you would pick up something new or a better way to remember it.

The founder of Grammar Girl is Mignon Fogarty and she is also the author of a series of books on writing including Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing. You can find out just how successful and popular the podcast, her books and Mignon herself is in her biography on the website below where you’ll also find much, much more.
