Wonderful Idea!

I can’t believe I’ve only just now stumbled upon this podcast! I’ve always wanted to read more, but it can be hard to find time to get through a whole book with so many other obligations. Now I can get introduced to new books while walking outside or while I’m commuting. The number of episodes y’all put out every day is remarkable!

Unfortunately I do have to agree with other commenters that the audio quality is unreliable, and some of the interviewers will either cut off the speaker or not ask the right questions. I hope this will improve over time; it’s such a great concept.

Great content!

I’ve listened to several channels for a couple of years now, and I’ve learned a lot. As a busy academic, I appreciate the opportunity to hear about new books that I may not have time to read. The usual length is about 45 minutes, which allows for the author to go into the book’s main arguments in some detail. The audio quality does vary somewhat, but I’ve noticed that it’s improved over the years. Find a channel or two that fit your interests and give it a listen!

Allows the expert to talk

Every interview allows an expert to talk about what they know, at length, with just a few questions to keep it going. Totally different from most other podcasts, where the host dominates the conversation. You can learn a lot. If you find the sound quality for one interview is poor or the subject too narrow, just move on to the next one. There are hundreds, many first rate.
