The Writer’s Almanac On Stitcher
Laux is also the author of Awake; What We Carry, a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award; Smoke; as well as a fine small press edition, The Book of Women. The fastest man in the world is now Lamont Marcell Jacobs of Italy who ran the 100-meter dash in Tokyo in 9.80 seconds, and bravo for him, but when you peak at 26 you face a long descent into normality. You run that fast and you miss a lot such as the woman I saw as I strolled in the park the other day who said into her telephone, “I was not put on this earth in order to make him happy,” which made me happy to hear, a woman who’d gotten a clearer sense of mission. The word from back home is that the sweet corn is not as good as hoped for due to the lack of rain at crucial junctures but I’m guessing the truth is that we expect too much of sweet corn, those of us who grew up with big gardens expect it to be redemptive whereas it is only a grain trying to be a vegetable. My father was a postal worker, a federal employee, not easily moved to rapture, but our sweet corn, which was 30 seconds from stalk to boiling pot, husked en route, made him very happy. I turned 79 a week ago and I’m quite satisfied with the promotion.
American Public Media has discontinued production and distribution of The Writer’s Almanac effective immediately, amid reported allegations of inappropriate behavior between Garrison Keillor and an individual that worked for him. For more information, please see the announcement from American Public Media regarding the cancellation. The Web site didn’t have audio until this point. As above, we plan to add to the back catalog as time permits. Bronson Alcott died on March 4, 1888; a few days earlier, bedridden, he had told his visiting daughter Louisa, “I am going up. Come with me.” She replied, “I wish I could.” As it turned out, she followed him just two days later, dying of a stroke at age 55. If you are hosting a show with Garrison, please feel free to use the below press photos for marketing, as well as the below short biography.
The country seems divided and so it takes forever to get basic stuff done and the sniping is ferocious and politicians don’t dare exhibit humor in public. As they say in Denmark, “Shut up and be beautiful.” I think about the beef taco I had for lunch and the salad with fresh tomato and basil, a very self-accepting cucumber, and a beautiful sliced onion, not a bitter resentful onion but an exuberant one. I think it may have started out as a cabbage but it transferred out of the program, wanting to be a root, and met other onions, experimented with different dressings and finally settled on straight oil/vinegar with ground pepper. I used to have countless readers and now here we are, the two of us, peas in a pod. I’ve never suffered from anxiety, I don’t know any QAnon people and I don’t have COVID, so I am going to skip complaining today. There is a limit to how much punishment people are willing to accept before they look around and consider greener pastures and meanwhile, in St. Paul, people thronged to the State Fair, devouring cheese curds and bratwursts, admiring the livestock and enjoying powerful centrifugal experiences.
The Writer’s Almanac is able to use the above tools since its podcast host or measurement company offers this service. It doesn’t mean that this individual podcast uses them, or has access to this functionality. Following allegations of inappropriate behavior against Garrison Keillor, Minnesota Public Radio and American Public Media are severing ties with Keillor. MPR’s weekly music and variety show with host Chris Thile will continue broadcast but will be renamed.
Each day, The Writer’s Almanacfeatures Garrison Keillor recounting the highlights of this day in history and reading a short poem or two. Each day, The Writer’s Almanac features Garrison Keillor recounting the highlights of this day in history and reading a short poem or two. In 2005 the program was briefly cancelled by Kentucky public radio station WUKY due to concerns about purportedly indecent content in some of the poems. The station reinstated the program after receiving an “outpouring of support” for the show. This program was distributed in APM’s Classical 24 stream and a large percentage of stations that carry it air all or mostly Classical Music during other times.
