2020 AP Stylebook Changes

Episode Notes

May flowers aren’t the only thing that we look forward to this time of year. It’s also when the Associated Press announces all of its changes to the AP Stylebook. We love the AP Stylebook and look forward to a fresh copy arriving in our mailbox every spring. Robert explores all of the 2020 revisions in a conversation with the internet’s Grammar Geek, Dave Nelsen. Also, the crew gives the pandemic a shove, and just when she thought classes were over for the semester, Sarah takes a PR Nation pop quiz.
