102 - When Andrew Keegan asks you to eat alligator...

Buzzfeed editor Emmy Favilla wrote a book! She's clearly not phubbing around. We sat down with the Brooklyn-born author of A World Without Whom to talk about what “phubbing” even means, the evolution of language (thanks to the—lowercase “i”—internet), grammar lies told by spry, elderly typing teachers, and reasons (OR reasons why) the em-dash is so elegant and the en-dash should die. We discover that Andrew Keegan is still hot, but has no followers on twitter (gasp!) and that he might be in a cult. Also, we'd prefer to be sour cream people (people with generally sour dispositions who are super into cream) than sour-cream people, thank you very much.
