Morning Journal flash briefing for Alexa

If you’d like brief daily updates on technology, books, marriage, and puppies, you can follow along with my Morning Journal flash briefing. From your Echo device, just say, “Alexa, enable Morning Journal.” Then each morning say, “Alexa, what’s up?” or “Alexa, what’s my flash briefing?” I post a five-minute audio journal each day except Sunday, usually by 7:30 am Eastern Time.
