WSIU Almanac is a weekday feature that provides an overview of events, happenings, and history of the world around us.  Each episode provides a little "slice of life" about the day.   And to make sure we don't miss anything we have a special e-mail set up that you can use to send information to us.  It's short and simple:   almanac@wsiu.org.
