My mom got me an Amazon Echo for my 40th birthday last month. (Yes, I know I am old.) I liked the idea of having Siri but a) for my house and b) that I didn't have to press and hold a button to talk to.  Also, the reviews for it were awesome.

That's why I am really excited that as of right now you can get the latest political news -- as written by yours truly -- via your Echo. Every day -- right around 3 pm eastern -- I'll put up an update on what you need to know from that day in politics. Simply ask Alexa for "what's going on in the election" or for your "flash briefing" and she'll read you what I wrote.

Want it? The directions on exactly how to get it are below.
