There have been those busy weeks where I have completely lost touch with the news of the world. Listening to the news during commute time has been replaced with teleconferences, and scanning the headlines on my phone has been replaced with scans of my calendar to figure out where I need to go next and if I have time to get my third cup of coffee. Sometimes all you need is a Point One break- 0.1 hour or 6 minutes off from the billable hour to get a quick news catch up on what is happening in the world.
Catch up with the biggest headlines of the week and the craziest stories in a fun way by listening to the last segment of the NPR program Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me called Lightening Fill in the Blanks. Guests of the program are given a prompt with a word or phrase missing about the latest news. In the time it takes to walk from your car to your office, you can get caught up on the latest happenings and a few needed laughs as the guests make light of some of the more ridiculous news stories.
