As many of you know, I got a new hip last November. The replacement works perfectly and I now try to walk at least an hour a day to keep it working and just to enjoy the fact that I can!
I've become a big fan of podcasts of all sorts to listen to while I walk. This is how I listen to State Librarian Susan Hildreth's webcasts now that Infopeople is converting them to podcasts . But, she's only on quarterly and I walk daily! So, I've been looking around for other podcast opportunities and want to tell you about two recent additions to the world of podcasts. Both the San Francisco Chronicle  and the Los Angeles Times  are putting columnists, tours, back stories, and more info freely downloadable podcasts. Yesterday I listened to the Chronicle's tour of North Beach and today, a two-part podcast with tips on how to best enjoy dim sum. Enjoy!
