    We discuss audio books with Scott Brick, actor and audio book narrator and Paul explains why the show is called "Paul The Book Guy".  We also recommend a few books and bring you some recent book news.
     
    This is our first podcast with our new audio equipment, which allows us to pretty much record "live to tape".  Now if only Paul can figure out which button makes what jingle play, we might be alright.

Open your mind to a world of books, podcasts and humor

The rotating cast of characters on this show is truly captivating. Great author interviews and interesting takes on book new and old as well as interesting podcast reviews. You just have to put up with the occasional Comic Books! and Dr. Who commentary. Lol. I love it. Hosted regularly by a guy on the East Coast, one on the West Coast and another up there in America's Hat.....aka......Soviet Toronto, Canuckistan.

All My Book Needs

Great show that covers many topics from business books to sci-fi/fanatsy. Also great coverage of book news and books in TV and movies.

Oxmarc ,

Fun, Informative & well put-together

For a show that notoriously claims it's lacking in post-editing, this show's very well designed & informative. Rarely am I interested in the books discussed, but I still listen in each week. The jingles are great too. Every podcast should do professional jingles - it's a small thing that familiarizes/endears the listenership. Amazing work, Book Guys.
