Standing on Points: A Cultural History of Punctuation

Florence Hazrat

What this podcast is *not*: a rule guide on proper punctuation. We'll only conjure the ghost of grammar in order to put it to rest. What this podcast *is*: a journey through the weird behaviour of punctuation in the wild. Be prepared to amble on the placid path of the comma, get lost on the winding road of brackets, and arrive at the well-deserved rest of the full stop. Along the way, we'll explore the past & future of punctuation, why a comma sparked the Russian Revolution, how to earn millions with a semicolon, and what your favourite mark says about you. Mind your dots & dashes!
