The author Michael Lewis has a podcast called "Against the Rules."  The summary for the episode entitled "The Alex Kogan Experience" is "Everyone hates grammar and ethics cops. Until they need one."

 

I enjoyed this podcast and think that readers of this forum will enjoy it also.

 

This doesn't really fit in the Q&A section, but I don't know where else to post it.

 

The podcast begins with the ethics topic.  If you are pressed for time and want to focus on grammar, I suggest going to https://overcast.fm/+RCm3kPHWI/7:08 which is 7 minutes and 8 seconds into the podcast at the point where Michael talks about the American Heritage dictionary firing its entire usage panel. At https://overcast.fm/+RCm3kPHWI/10:00 Michael talks to Bryan Garner, author of Garner's Modern English Usage.

 

At this Overcast site, you can adjust the playback speed and go forward or back 30 seconds with one click.
