Last week I posted my top 10 writing podcasts. I hope that you found some you could enjoy amongst them. It was great to also receive some recommendations from readers of the blog for other podcasts I can try for myself.
This week I am going to share my top 7 podcasts for readers.
Two crime writers – Steve Cavanagh and Luca Veste – discuss publishing news, hear reviews from bloggers, and speak to the biggest names in the book world.
2. By the Book.
By The Book is half reality show, half self-help podcast, and one wild social experiment. Join comedian Jolenta Greenberg and her skeptical friend Kristen Meinzer as they live by the rules of a different self-help book each episode to figure out which ones might actually be life changing. Jolenta is a contributor to the BBC, WNYC, and Risk! She’s also a Moth story slam winner. You’ve probably heard her funny stories on a podcast before. Kristen is a producer with Panoply and former co-host of PRI/WNYC’s Movie Date podcast where, no surprise, her job was to be critical.
Richard and Judy present their thoughts and interviews with each author of the books chosen for the Book Club Autumn 2017 reads. Get involved in what is on its way to becoming Britain’s biggest Book Club.
Every day, hundreds of people meet in pubs, clubs and front rooms to discuss books. The reading group has become one of the biggest cultural phenomena of our age, but because it takes place in private, it often goes unnoticed. Every fortnight, writer William Shaw goes to eavesdrop on a different book group.
An intimate fortnightly conversation with authors and the objects that inspired their books.
This podcast features Open Book and A Good Read. In Open Book Mariella Frostrup talks to authors about their work. In A Good Read Harriett Gilbert discusses favourite books.
Recommended is a podcast by BookRiot featuring interesting people talking about their favorite books.
Let me know in the comments any reader podcasts you listen to and recommend and I may be able to compile another list for the future.
Next week it’s true crime podcasts.
