Writer's Almanac podcast available

The Writer's Almanac from American Public Media

This is great. As I mentioned via del.icio.us a while back:

If you want to make a podcast I'd listen to, try emulating GK's daily radio show. Artist birthdays, an anecdote, and a poem. Out the door: 300 seconds.

Well I'm very happy to note that those 300 daily seconds of The Writer's Almanac are now available as a downloadable podcast. Good on Garrison, and good on APM. (I know Mr. K can be a little nutty with the copyright and trademarks, so I can only imagine this was a decision that came with a certain amount of deliberation.)

In any case it's the sole resident of my daily podcast schedule, and if you're a fan of almanacs, writing, or the geeky world of English majors, I think you'll enjoy it much as well.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
