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.)


Donโ€™t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the commentsโ€”or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

  1. No, and yes. I.e. I don’t listen to book-related
    podcasts but I know what a podcast is. I did listen
    to one related to the Harry Potter books once, by link
    from a discussion forum. I’ve also listened to some
    pod-casts not book-related.

    Too short an answer to bother making a blog post
    of my own about it this week ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. This is a great question. Many people don’t even know what a podcast is. Here’s my answer.

  9. Just answering here rather than the blog today because the short answer is — no. I don’t have an ipod or laptop to listen to them with, and I don’t want to sit at my computer and listen to them. If I ever get something mobile to listen to them with, I might.

  12. This question triggered a post about childhood summers and radio, and how those memories link to romance-related podcasts, including Jane Austen and Deanna Raybourn ๐Ÿ™‚
