Although I am thousands of miles from the States, I still believe it is important to be informed locally and nationally. Here are some of my favorite ways I stay connected to the world daily:
The Skimm - This site sends you a morning email with quick news updates.
NPR - Growing up listening to NPR on the radio, it is now my homepage. I skim through articles every day to get a general understanding of what is happening.
Side note: NPR's Car Talk podcast is one of my favorites. Listen to two brother's talk
about car repairs, car troubles, and other callers problems.
Today Show Podcast - This is part of my morning routine, during my 2 hour commute to Brussels. You can watch the Today shows first hour with out commercials, daily! On of my favorites. Who doesn't love Matt, Al and Savannah?
60 Minutes Podcast - After the Today show this podcast is up next, a classic.
You all might be seeing a trend here, I love podcast. Maybe I will write a blog about my favorites (I could make a top 10).
How do you stay informed?
