Yep...sounds like a dictionary to me!

What a great idea- but why does it have to be so boring?! M-W is my dictionary of choice but unless this podcast entertains me AND lets me learn, I won't listen.

Almost as good as....

It is wonderful that M-W supports services such as these. They also provide support for Kathleen Taylor's NPR show, "Word for the Wise". The M-W "Word of the Day" seems to be the same idea, not as well produced or delivered. I'll download it though; the subject is fascinating, no matter how boring the announcer may be.


As a particularly lazy individual, I can say that this is as good as it gets. Of course, in keeping with my indolent nature, I'd recommend the Webster-Chip implantation. Of course that's way, way off. I know this for a fact, because you-know-who would've had one and the cost of installation would be tax deductible
