Agile quick look
The Book Review podcast gives a good, quick look at the latest book news with enough detail to make it interesting. Tannenbaum’s sharing the mike with various other reviewers is a format that helps keep the show lively, and the variety of books talked about has a little for everyone or a good deal for the Renaissance reader. Good stuff.
A must-listen for book-lovers.
Great presenter who both knows how to ask interesting questions and knows how to listen.
The guests are allowed to speak at length about their books and the regular contributors bring their knowledge and enthusiasm to the table.
(I'm from UK & I'd put this on a level with a program from BBC Radio4. High praise indeed for a US show!)
