In this episode, I am honored to have Paula Paige as my guest. Paula is a former colleague and a newsroom legend. She is unquestionably one of the best copy editors I have ever worked with, and she’s also a great human being. She’s compassionate, thoughtful, and resilient. Paula is the only person I know who has had two parallel and fully-realized careers: one in civilian journalism and the other in military public affairs.

In our conversation, Paula talks about the fine points of editing, and explains why it's important to keep up with the latest trends in language.
