Last year I started listening to the Grammar Girl podcast. It was a daunting task…to start at the beginning and listen to all the podcasts since it began in late 2006 and it was 2014! Nevertheless, I was up for hours upon hours of grammar.
First, I started listening to the podcast on the Podcasts app on iTunes. However, I grew weary of the advertisements. I completely understand the purpose of them, but considering I planned to go through ALL of the podcasts, I wondered…was there a better way?
I found the Grammar Girl app for iTunes this year. I can’t believe it only cost $1.99! The hours it saves me from not having to hear the same ads over and over…definitely worth the price. Plus, there is bonus content only available on the app. There are extras embedded into the track, like pictures and PDFs and bonus tracks. MORE GRAMMAR? YES PLEASE!
I love the Grammar Girl podcast and the app. I can easily favorite an episode while I’m driving to look back at the transcript later or just note the content in general.
Which leads me to this…
I’ve listened to several episodes that I’ve wanted to share. However, I cannot simply embed the track into WordPress. My only solution is to embed the transcript that contains the audio as well.
Feel free to read, listen, or do both! I highly recommend subscribing to this podcast, but you don’t have listen to all the podcasts. I’ll periodically embed the transcript from the Grammar Girl archive of podcasts that you definitely shouldn’t miss.
So here is the podcast from March 4, 2010, titled “Top Ten Grammar Myths”. Scroll down and read them all, and be sure to click to the second page to see myths 1-5.
