USPS PodCasts

The United States Postal Service's Your Postal Podcast internet site offers free monthly podcasts.

This month's edition is a seven-minute feature callled Darkness and Might: Journey to Alaska and Kuwait. It's described as "...a very cold, dark day, -- in the life of a Fairbanks letter carrier. Hear what it's like to deliver the mail in Alaska's extreme winter weather."

You'll also hear about Priority Mail care packages being received by soldiers stationed in Kuwait, and you'll get a roundup of the latest postal news.

Another podcast of personal interest is John Lennon: Artist, Legend and Stamp collector (29th edition, Oct. 20, 2010) which talks about his early childhood as seen through his collection of postage stamps.

Archives go back to May of 2008. Interesting listening.
