WSIU Almanac
Monday - Friday at 5:30am, 6:30am, 7:30am, 8:30am

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.
