Last week I mentioned a few virtual book and literary festivals and conferences people might like to attend. But if you don’t have the money to attend these virtual events, then a good alternative is to dip into a literary or book podcast, which often feature similar content as the festivals do, for instance, author interviews and panels.
Here’s a few podcast series you might like to try:
Can’t Lit — an irreverent take on all things Canadian and Literature from the West Coast.
The Next Chapter with Sheila Rogers — technically this is not a podcast, but you can listen to episodes of CBC Radio’s long-standing weekly show about books and authors when ever you want.
The Guardian Books podcast — Episode titles include “…What to Read While Self-isolating”, “What if Gandalf Joined the Sweeney [a division of the London Metropolitan Police]”, “The Brontes’ Fantasy World” and “…The Recipe for a Perfect Crime Novel”.
The Librarian Is In — The New York Public Library’s podcast about books, culture and what to read next.
