For the uninitiated, the Writer's Almanac is a spot garrison Keillor does on Minnesota Public Radio every day. He reads a poem and them gives the run down of the day in terms of literary/cultural history.

I subscribe to the email every day, and it makes me feel all smart and bookish. :)

They have a podcast as well, and you get to hear Keillor read the poems, which is always a treat. The man may be slightly oafish looking, but he's got a great voice. Born for radio.

Anyway, check it out.
