I have been listening to Garrison Keillor’s The Writer’s Almanac Podcast for over a year now, but I’ve never shared that information. I find that when I’m looking for some “writerly” inspiration, it’s a perfect springboard.
The podcast is only a few minutes long – I keep about 6 months worth on my iPhone at all times. It’s not a daily offering, but it’s close to daily. It usually gives a couple of fantastic quotes, a biography of a writer and sometimes even a short poem.
If you would like something interesting to listen to on your way to work, or when standing in line waiting, check it out on iTunes. It’s supported through brief advertising statements at the beginning/end and is brought to us by American Public Media. (You can also subscribe to the RSS feed by visiting The Writer’s Almanac Website.)
Worthwhile way to spend a few minutes each day.
