Talk the Talk: The Grammarian Is In (with Ellen Jovin)

Tuesday 25th June / presented by Hedvig Skirgård Daniel Midgley Ben Ainslie

If you're at a park in New York City, you may see someone at a table offering free grammar advice.

That person is writer Ellen Jovin, and people come to her Grammar Table for tips on usage, punctuation, and life in general. What motivates her to do this? What questions does she get? And how does the team stack up to her knowledge?

Ellen joins us on this episode of Talk the Talk.
