podcastIn this new podcast, Infopeople’s book guy extraordinaire discusses the big change coming to theMan Booker Prize. Starting in 2014, the prize will be open to American writers! Is this a good or a bad thing? The jury is clearly still out.

He also talks about some new words just added to the Oxford English Dictionary. Squee! Among them: “fomo,” “twerk,” and a really great addition, “omnishambles.”
