Damien Boath1,029This week we revisit an oldie but a goodie: USA Vs Aussie slang! Way back in Episode 11 we played a game to guess what the slang terms meant and we've decided to have another round of it. We're also going to look at why we shorten words (diminutive) and how some "short" words are just as long as the word we are trying to shorten. To help us get our head around it we have @101833715717140625047 along for the ride to explain it for us and to see how well she can guess some of my Australianisms...... All this and more on The Newbie Writers' Podcast!The Newbie Writers' Podcast #132 - Diminutive Slang With Grammar Girl!2014-05-10 01:00:002  
Ray Ortega2,475What do you do if someone promotes your podcast but you don't necessarily agree with their content? Do you care? Is there such a thing as "bad press?"  At any time, someone can share your content with their own audience be it a simple word-of-mouth mention or sharing your logo, content, or promo. But what if your personal beliefs or brand don't align with theirs? Do you worry that you'll be seen as associated with their brand or is any promo, good promo? Join @104055244616391380650, @108629902260400399949 @100309749866559941116 @101833715717140625047  and @115002772803782411836  to discuss the topic of podcast promotion and whether or not you feel it's necessary to "police" your brand.  This Round will air live at 7:30pm EST, UTC/GMT -5.

ePublish Unum - Education for Authors157,597Welcome to the Books & Beer Hangout! This is a weekly video chat on topic related to something in or around the world of digital publishing … and we drink beer! It isn't enough to publish one book and let it sit around gathering dust. Many popular indie authors will tell you that doing something new generates buzz that impacts all of their older work to date. So how do you keep people talking and engaged in this constantly changing online world? +Mignon Fogarty, author of the enormously popular _Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips_ books and podcast join us to discuss the new things she's doing to keep her readers engaged, including some she was seriously advised to avoid. Join us for some solid tips on how to make yourself an indie author in more than just name. We’ll chat with our guest for 15 minutes and then up the show to everyone in our Google+ Circles in the "Hangover". You can ask your questions directly, and by all means bring your own beer! All you need is a webcam, a microphone, and speakers (or a headset). Follow us on Google+ at https://plus.google.com/u/0/105236277208554710444/posts and go to our page during this time to watch or join in! You can see past episodes and upcoming topics on our site at http://epublishunum.com/books-and-beer/ Hope to see you soon!

A week or so ago I read an article called something like "Why Serial Makes Me Want to Quit Podcasting." I'm pretty sure it was on Medium, but now I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone have a link to it? Thanks!

We know language changes—we don't say thee and thou anymore—but have you ever wondered why? Often, it's not clear, but there's a particularly satisfying answer when it comes to these two pronouns.

I'm stoked because Alex Blumberg pitching him in the Startup podcast is required listening in the media entrepreneurship course I teach. If you want to watch too, Dave Croasdell will live stream it through Periscope on Twitter at 10:30 AM Pacific. You'll need to download the Periscope app and follow @DrCrz.

I'm looking forward to the movie! 

Some press reports say the film's directors created the language—they call it Minionese—and recorded some of the Minion voices themselves. Here's what some people think some of the words mean.

At NMX, I talked about making a short video version of your podcast for Instagram, and I finally got around to trying it myself. Here's my first attempt! I started with a short audio clip that I had made for Clammr.

What do you think? Besides putting better instructions at the end for finding the podcast in case people embed the video, how can I make it better? Do you think you might try it?

Sometimes you know a word has two forms, but you're not sure which one is appropriate to use in the situation at hand. This happens a lot with verbs, where past-tense forms can compete for acceptance and supremacy with language users. From our friends at +Vocabulary.com, here are 10 verbs whose past tense can be confusing, along with some tidbits about their history and related linguistic phenomena.
