Booking Through Thursday — Podcasts

btt button

Suggested by Clare:

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.)

Oh we’ve opened quite a can of worms here. I enjoy a wide variety of podcasts and I have a few that are book related I’ll listen to.

Here’s a sample:
DragonPage Cover to Cover — the original and one of the best.
The Kick-Ass Mystic Ninjas
Variant Frequencies (it’s short stories…it sort of counts)
Chronic Rift Podcast — They cover all aspects of pop culture, with a book episode every once in a while.

Of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t put in a plug for the myriad of shows available at Farpoint Media. (I contribute to some of the shows there, esp. Slice of SciFi) Yes, it’s a shameless plug…but there are a lot of great shows over there. :)

And, of course, if you’re looking for free audio fiction, there’s Podiobooks.com.   A lot of authors who are getting published now got their start there and it’s free audio books.   So even if you sample a podcast novel you don’t like, you can stop and you’re not out anything!  (Well, save time and electrons).

  1. Well, that’s OK – shameless plugging is what blogging is all about, isn’t it?

    This has been a really fun question – I’m getting some great recommendations for podcasts I want to explore (and since I’m a podcast virgin, they’re all new to me).

    Thanks for the recommendations!

  3. I don’t listen to podcasts, but my husband loves them. He listens to technology ones.

    I am not into the techie thingys, so don’t understand anything about podcasts. I’m still a page turner.

  5. I like how you’re presenting these book podcasts. Haven’t listened to any yet but did go to some of your provided links. I wonder if I should have some of my stories read by professional voice actors too. Could be beneficial.

  6. I will definitely be looking into these!

    Yay I fellow podcast lover! I’ve been surprised by how little a lot of people know about podcasts or how many bloggers dislike them. I’ll definitely have to check these out.
