iPod newbie - share your favorite freebies

Okay - as I mentioned the other day I have just received my first iPod. Yes, I have a lot of music to put on it and it will be a nice accent in my car, (though I do have XM.) But I've been thinking in terms of how to use it to help me keep connected to my writing life when I am at the day job. 

I was very pleasantly surprised to discover that I could sync my contacts and calendar on it. That makes looking for a new cell phone much easier. I don't have to look for a smart phone - yeah! And there's the notes functions which I don't know if I will use but it could nice to have.

I've explored iTunes and found several Poem-a-Day projects as well as NPR and some other freebies. But it's a big wide Internet out there. What, if anything, have you found as far as podcasts, etc, that I might want to add to my iPod?

My favorites are:

This American Life
This I Believe
The Princeton Review Vocabulary Minute

My iPod has also opened the world of audio books. I have listened enough that I can now tell a good production from an -eh- one. I listen more to words than to music while I'm driving now. Interesting changes.

I've liked two of the Nodcast Podcast downloads: there's one with Dan Zanes, and one with Elizabeth Mitchell interviewing Ella Jenkins.

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
