    On this episode: Linda doesn't love all doggos, or even puppers, but she'll never reveal her breed ranking. We research the origins of the internet's favorite word and realize this podcast is el doggo. Linda can't find Youtube and tells us to write like pubescent children if we want people to actually read anything. Lastly, your emails are ruining your life. Or at the very least, your credibility.

One of Morgan's many secret Facebook groups enjoyed a holiday thread about the words and phrases family members just can't get right. Let's all make fun of our parents!

    On this episode: IT'S CHRISTMAS! We know you woke up early and gathered your family to listen to this episode. Big news: The name Aryan catapulted to #32 for baby boys in 2017. Happy birthday, Jesus. Everything is terrible. By the way, the most popular girl name was like Ava but longer, and the #1 boy name took Morgan by surprise (hint: Jake Gyllenhaal's dog). We also review Dante's nine circles of hell for grammar nerds. Worth noting: Linda is a Trekkie, and Morgan once yelled at a guy for calling her a “doppelganger” because she didn't know what it meant.   Links:

    On this episode: Brian is ruining the podcast and Morgan is in a German immersion program. We throw out our best guesses for “Word of the Year” and reflect on how naive we were just a year ago. The Economist asks, “r the kidz ruining writing?” (no) and have no fear, the NSA is verrrrry busy with important grammar issues so our country is totally safe from any kind of threat.   Check out our new store!

    On this episode: It's holiday card season, and that means one thing: We find out that all our friends and family members don't know how to write their own names. NO APOSTROPHES. There is no such thing as a lawyer dog, but for some reason, police officers thought that's what a man was requesting when he said, “Get me a lawyer, dog.” Guess who the judge sided with? We love BuzzFeed's Quibbles & Bits newsletter, and you will too. The most recent email delves into mental health terms we should eliminate from our writing (and everyday conversations). Also, Pittsburgh scares children with a creepy rendition of Noah's Ark. Neat episode!     Links:

Lastly, Morgan doesn't help nerds and Linda collects her junk mail. Cool!     Links:

    On this episode: I guess we can't record too far in advance because our story about Anthony Scaramucci is now as relevant as your most clever and colorful AIM profile. Enjoy our mocking story anyway. Also, how do you laugh? Haha, he he, lol, ha, heh, HAHAHA. There's something wrong with all of them. But they can all cure disease, probably. There's a new language of dating, so three old married people discuss its credibility while trying to contend with an especially tricky online slideshow.

    On this episode: Who is a bigger mixtape nerd: Brian, who crafted works of art for girls who didn't care, or Linda, who made an entire “My Heart Will Go On” cassette? They're both dorks, and they're both Xennials. New York Times reporters stand up for their copy editors because journalistic standards and accuracy. Female doctors aren't introduced with their “Doctor” title as much as male doctors. OMG SHOCKING. Shout-out to the Northwest Independent Editors Guild conference, which Morgan and Linda wish they could attend but can't because of their upcoming nuptials.

    On this episode: Brian moved his seat in the studio, got laser eye surgery and switched from a Mac to a PC. After marveling at these major changes, we answer a listener question about ellipses. Apparently all we care about are email sign-offs, so we feature yet another article on that topic. Please note that if Morgan sees “Please consider the environment” in your email signature, she prints it and burns it. Did you know that vowels affect word order? You do now, dong-ding. Also, Brian wrote only one paper in college. This explains a lot.     Links:
