The Readers: A podcast for everyone
14 December 2011
I just had to share my enthusiasm for this new podcast I have recently discovered.
When a I say recently, shamefully, I have known about it since it first became available. Unfortunately, due to my old laptop having my iTunes on it, and my sheer dislike of doing anything on my laptop because it takes so long, I only subscribed to the podcast in the last few days.
I can't believe I waited so long!
The Readers is a podcast by two book lovers, Gav from Gav Reads and Simon from Savidge Reads. I have followed Savidge Reads for a little while now, but this podcast has introduced me to Gav Reads which I am very much looking forward to reading more of.
In The Readers, Gav and Simon basically just talk all books. So far I have listened to them discuss the Man Booker Award, short stories and how to get out of a reading slump - amoungst many other things. So far, I have listened to them interview Carol Birch (short listed for the 2011 Man Booker for Jamrach's Menagerie) and Ian Rankin (most famous for his Rebus series).
I have enjoyed it so much that I listened to the first three episodes almost straight through. It's great because it's listening to two people just talks books and all things book related, just like you and I might do with friends, except that Gav and Simon know what they are talking about and have a wide range of interests and tastes which makes it incredibly interesting.
I will looking forward to listening to more of their podcasts and having a look through their show notes.
So, if you haven't listened to this podcast - please do. I can guarantee that you won't be disappointed.
