quick and dirty grammar girlThe podcast Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing has gone from zero to over a million downloads since launching in late July, according to its creators at the QDnow Network.

Show host and creator Mignon Fogarty says the key to the show’s success has been making it fun. Fogarty uses humorous examples to answer listener questions about the English language.

“Listeners say they are amazed that grammar can be so much fun,” says Fogarty. “As a child, I loved the Saturday morning Schoolhouse Rock grammar cartoons. I can’t sing, but I strive to bring that same sense of fun to each Grammar Girl podcast.”

A recent episode took a look into the colon (MP3).

“The show is great fun to listen to and is so necessary since we spend all day talking in crazy instant messaging computer-people language,” says Dave Mansueto, co-founder of the hosting company Liberated Syndication. “The show consistently ranks with our top podcasts,” he says.

“What distinguishes Grammar Girl from other expert sources is Mignon Fogarty – Grammar Girl herself – whose experience as a writer and editor bring a real life perspective to resolving grammar’s most difficult uncertainties,” says listener Jim Ott, adjunct English professor at Las Positas College in Livermore, CA..
