Gold standard

The New York Times Book Review podcast is, to my mind, the gold standard of all book podcast out there right now. Pamela Paul manages a program that combines erudition, information, insights, and humor in a wonderful way. A joy to listen to!

A favorite

I enjoy listening to readers talk about books, so this podcast is a must-listen for me. I am not always interested in the interview(s) that lead the podcast (and I sometimes skip those) but I always enjoy the end segments - news from the literary world + the critics’ roundtable. A great resource for readers. Thanks!

Best Podcast Out There

I listen to several podcasts but this is my penultimate favorite. I love the detailed interviews with writers and works recently reviewed but mostly I like the discussions among the critics of what they are reading, how well they like what they are reading and hearing occasional quotes from the works they find compelling. Just like the Book Review, which I’ve read since I was a teen, this is excellent journalism.
