I listen to podcasts while I walk the dog, make dinner, and clean the house. Here are five about reading that you might enjoy*:
All the Wonders (formerly Let’s Get Busy) – “Weekly interviews with Authors, Illustrators, Award Winners, Up-And-Comers, and Everyone In Between.” My favorites include ones with Beth Kephart, Philip Stead, and Lynda Mullaly Hunt.
Best Book Ever (This Week) – “Five children’s books reviewed. No script. No rehearsal. No lip service.” This one’s new to me, also from the All the Wonders folks. I’m looking forward to listening in!
The Yarn – “A narrative adventure. The Yarn takes listeners behind the scenes of children’s literature, and lets them look at all the threads that must be woven together to create a book.” The Gary D. Schmidt Orbiting Jupiter interview. Enough said.
What Should I Read Next?: Book Talk / Reading Recommendations / Literary Matchmaking – “What Should I Read Next is the show for every reader who has ever finished a book and faced the problem of not knowing what to read next. Each week, host Anne Bogel interviews a new person and finds out their fasts. Then, she makes recommendations about what to read next.” Listen to yours truly in episode #14.
Nerdy Bookcast – “A co-production of the Nerdy Book Club and the Teacher Learning Sessions.” Part Nerdy Book Club posts, part interviews with authors grouped around a theme, this new podcast is already a winner three episodes in.
Yes, this list is kidlit heavy — what did you expect? 😉
