The Almanac podcasts are no longer on this Web site. However, if you have an Amazon Echo device, our daily “Radio Report” is now available as the Daily Almanac Flash Briefing. See more information below.
The Almanac is on Alexa!
If you have an Amazon Echo device, get our Daily AlmanacFlash Briefing! A flash briefing is a short, informative piece of prerecorded audio—kind of like a podcast or radio show.
Our Almanac Flash Briefing is daily! Alexa will read you the date, the day of the year, significant events from the day in history, plus a useful tip or interesting tidbit from the editors of The Old Farmer’s Almanac—all in 60 seconds. Start each day with a smile!
To enable this Flash Briefing:
Open the Alexa app on your mobile device.
Go to Settings.
Go to Flash Briefing.
Search for daily almanac.
Tap on the Daily Almanac Flash Briefing in the search results.
Tap Enable to Use.
From that point on, whenever you say “Alexa, play my Flash Briefing,” you’ll hear the Daily Almanac Flash Briefing in the line-up.
