My days can be complete once again.

My days are not quite complete without the intelligent, worldly, erudite words and calming voice of Garrison Keeler. The opening piano riff alone causes me to pause for a deep breath amidst chaotic days.

This short program could be called “meditation for writers.”

Bad ad choice

What’s with the horror film ad after the pod? Writers almanac is too relaxing for that nonsense. It’s okay to have ads but aim for ads with a similar vibe as the show. Otherwise, it really removes me from the experience.

You have been missed

Hearing again is like a breath of fresh air in a stale environment that needed an inversion to push it through. With great admiration, thank you, thank you!
