Booky podcasts

ipod-bookA few weeks ago, the DVD machine in my craft room died once and for all. I cried and mourned its loss and then went searching for something else to listen to while sewing. I decided to give podcasts a try and, having picked out a couple sufficiently nerdy ones (yes, I’m currently living on a Stargate/Babylon 5 high) quickly became enamoured with the form.

So I was thinking, do you listen to podcasts? Any favourites? Got any booky ones to recommend?

I used to listen to Harry Potter fansite podcasts. They were hugely entertaining.


As you well know. I have a podcast on my website.

I've listened to a few podcasts here and there but not that many. Can you list your favorites and the booky ones? I'd love a chance to try it out!

I am addicted to podcasts! I love Books on the Nightstand which was mentioned above. I also like a ton of podcasts from NPR. Some of the ones I listen to are: books, popculture, science, Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me.

I also love the Reality TV Podcast, especially when Amazing Race is on. There are some really good podcasts on Lost if you are into that show! I know one of the ones I listen to is called The Transmission.

Hm, I've never really gotten interested in podcasts. I know I've listened to a couple author interviews from the B&N Meet the Writers podcast, but that's about it.

I like the BBC series In Our Time. They do podcasts on loads of different topics but if you want books specifically then there are tonnes in their archives.
