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).
