|Phoebe and me out|
for a walk last Christmas.
Not so surprisingly, listening to a podcast on the history of the English language, and therefore covering a lot of world history as well, has given me numerous details to add to my stories, from historical details to character and plot ideas. I also enjoy learning the background of some of our traditions and gaining insight into the complexity of our language.
I don't have as much time to read as I'd like, so I often listen to podcasts to get my learning in, chiefly listening to The History of English Podcast, Renewing Your Mind (R.C. Sproul, history of the church and biblical teaching), This Week in Microbiology (microbiology papers discussed by scientists), Coffee Break French (for learning French), and Helping Authors Become Writers (K.M. Weiland with writing tips).

you'll love The History of English Podcast.
What do you like to learn? Or would like to learn when life slows down enough to give you the time?
