Overdue is a podcast about the books you've been meaning to read. Join Andrew and Craig each week as they tackle a new title from their backlog. Classic literature, obscure plays, goofy children’s books: they'll read it all, one overdue book at a time.

Ep 015 – The Elements of Style, by Strunk & White

Whether or not you’ve read The Elements of Style, the writing rules and techniques you learned in grade school likely came from Strunk and White’s “little book.”

Craig had never read the book, and he thought chatting up Andrew – who gets paid to put words on the Internet – about S&W’s various axioms might prove entertaining.

Join us as we (dis)agree on a few key rules, chat incessantly about segues/segways, and tie ourselves in linguistic knots.
