New York Times Book Review Podcast

February 10, 2008 at 10:47 pm (Books, Media, Social Trends)

I don’t know where I have been, but this is very exciting to me. First, the whole concept of “podcasts”. Forgive me, I know they are all the rage in new media. I knew of them peripherally of course, but hadn’t downloaded any or gotten involved. Then, this week I bought a new Macbook with iTunes and … the iTunes store, from where you can subscribe to all these amazing podcasts for FREE! 

The first five that I downloaded: NY Times Book Review, NY Times Front Page, CBC Vinyl Cafe Stories, CBC Best of Ideas, and This American Life. So, tomorrow on my way to the city I will be listening to the book review section as they talk about books on politics. Or just politics. The preview wasn’t clear. Either way, Sam Tanenhaus is keeping me company on the commute as I head down to the Random House offices for Spring Preview.
