Grammar usage on Grammar Girl

Hi, GG, listening to episode 711, in the Blinkist advert, i was confused by the arrangement of words. Please comment on something you said(read?). You said you were "...supposed to read a biography of someone who changed the world this week." I listened, and wondered, as the current news doesn't offer anyone who really changes he world, such as world leaders, celebrities. I heard you say that whoever changed the world did so this week. Your intent, i suppose, is you read the biography this week. I trust you and question myself. Please clarify.

One of my Faves!!!

I’m a grammar geek. Love these short, sweet episodes. I love the mix of linguistics and history. I’ve learned so much as I listen to this podcast en route to work (30-minute commute).
