Listening Lately – Writer’s Almanac

Anytime I happen to be in the car by 6:45 in the morning, I tune in to The Writer’s Almanac .  It’s a short radio segment with portraits of different writers and daily poems.  There’s nothing quite like a poem read out loud, and it’s a particularly wonderful way to start a weekday morning.

But because my local NPR station broadcasts the segment so early, I seldom catch it on time.  A few weeks ago I liked The Writer’s Almanac’s page on Facebook, and now a link to each day’s program shows up in my daily newsfeed.  I’m hoping this will be a good alternative way to listen.

I do still prefer to listen to the program in the car, to be honest.  I find I focus and absorb the poem better when I’m on the road.  But I’m trying to get in the habit of listening online, too.  We’ll see how it goes.

What are you all listening to these days?

  1. This segment is also podcasted, so if you’re a frequent iTunes user or have a phone or MP3 players that runs apps, you can subscribe so it automatically downloads each day. (A suggestion for anyone who, like me, would otherwise forget to stay on top of this!)
