So, Listen to Us on NPR already!

Now you can download "A Way with Words," the show about language that I co-host with the uber-verbivorous Richard Lederer, as a podcast from National Public Radio. It's sort of like NPR's "Car Talk," only our listeners call in with questions about language -- word origins, grammar, slang, word puzzles, pronunciation, idioms, regionalisms, and bloopers. Our show also features interviews with some of the most interesting authors and language experts who're making news in the world of words.

You'll find our show at NPR's podcast page. There you can also get a suitable-for-printing-out-and-framing photo of the two of us -- provided, that is, that you have a 5 mm x 5 mm frame.

For more about "A Way with Words," visit our home station in San Diego, KPBS-FM.

Now I have no excuses for missing any shows. "I couln't wake up in time to listen to AWW" doesn't cut it anymore. :)

And btw, Antonio, what do you MEAN you can't wake up to listen to AWWW, anyway? Are you telling me you sleep past noon on Saturdays??
