Booking Through Thursday: Podcasts

From Booking Through Thursday, here’s this week’s question:

Suggested by Clare: Do you ever listen to book-related podcasts?
If so, which ones and why? (Include the URLs for people who aren’t familiar with them.)
Or, of course, there’s the flip side … did you even know that such a thing existed? (I ask because I know a lot of people who have no idea what a podcast is.)
Here I am, booking through Thursday, even as my blog template tells me it shall implode within 24 hours. Now that’s dedication. : )
I love podcasts.
As I trot around town doing my many minutes of exercise, I need a distraction, and usually podcasts are it.
While personal finance podcasts are my top podcast choice, followed by The Dinner Party Download, reading podcasts are right up there on my list.
My favorite book-related podcasts both come to us from the incomparable Nancy Pearl (she of the librarian action figure). They are:
Book Lust with Nancy Pearl (in which she interviews authors)
Nancy Pearl Book Reviews (in which she talks about books in a particular genre or books that relate to one another somehow, or another reading-related topic)
The thing about Nancy Pearl is that she know books inside and out, plus she’s as pleasant as the day is long.

    I've heard of Nancy Pearl before but never of these podcasts. I'll definitely have to check them out! I'm surprised by how few of the commenters on BTT knew about podcasts, I adore them.
