Podcasts

This week's Booking Through Thursday asks:

Do you ever listen to book-related podcasts?

If so, which ones and why? (Include the URLs for people who aren’t familiar with them.)
Or, of course, there’s the flip side … did you even know that such a thing existed? (I ask because I know a lot of people who have no idea what a podcast is.)


Yes I do! Well one main one: That's How I Blog on Blog Talk Radio hosted by Nicole from Linus's Blanket (click on the title of the show for the link and to replay all back shows!). She hosts book bloggers and authors alike. It's great for book related news, blogging scoop and tips. Basically if you are a book blogger or are thinking about becoming one this is the place to be. Oh and not to plug myself, but I am going to be on the show on Wed. Aug 4th at 6pm PST so check it out :)

Now dish, where do you guys get your bookish news from podcasts?

  2. Haven't listened to any podcasts yet, but I'm getting some great suggestions from today's BTT posts. I guess I need to branch out!

  8. I hate to admit this, but I don't really understand what a podcast is. :) Like listening to the radio on your computer? And how does one podcast? Good luck with your spot on the show!

  9. Ash - try to catch it again...on Aug 4th!

    Trish - to me a podcast is any thing you can listen to on you computer or iPod..which is maybe where the name came from? But you can replay radio shows on your mp3 player and listen wherever. Does that make sense? On iTunes you can subscribe to certain podcasts so they download automatically everytime there is a new show.

  10. I listen to the NYT Book Review podcast - they often have good author interviews. I also listen to World Book Club by BBC - they focus on one novel per podcast and the author is interviewed and does readings from the novels. They are very good! Found both on itunes.
