For WordNerds & those with strong feelings about the word “asshat”

This is a link to an interesting interview with Steve Kleinedler, executive editor of the new American Heritage Dictionary. This is the first of interviewer June Thomas’ The Afterword podcasts for Slate. Although the headline suggests that the interview is mostly about the future of print dictionaries, the conversation covers all things wordy, including Mr. Kleinedler thumbing through the new dictionary looking for interesting combinations of guide words. Much fun!
