In the this month’s podcast, you’ll hear from the California owner of one 1960s-era hot rod featured on the Postal Service’s popular set of Muscle Cars Forever stamps. You’ll also hear the heartwarming story of a Colorado community putting postal teddy bears to work as children’s ambassadors for local sheriff’s deputies.

A roundup of postal headlines concludes the program – along with a chance to win a free collectible folder featuring a sheet of 2011’s Indianapolis 500 Forever stamps.
