A short while back, I wrote about my top 5 favorite podcasts, most of which are not particularly bookish.
(I know: weird.)
But goodness knows I listen to lots of the bookish stuff, too.
Here are my favorite bookish podcasts…
What Should I Read Next?
Oh, my goodness. Anne Bogel is so pleasant and kind and knowledgeable, I wish I were her. She invites a guest for each episode, asks them to tell her 3 books they love, 1 book they hated, and what they’re in the mood to read now. Then she prescribes 3 books for them. I always play along at home, and think of which books I’d suggest. This is pure comfort listening, guys.
Jenn & Amanda are smart & engaging & they love books. Lots of enthusiasm here.
Book Club Appetizer
A great podcast that focuses on a particular book that’s wildly discussable. Sometimes there are spoilers, so if that’s a thing for you, read the book first.
There are some amazing author interviews on this podcast. I cherry-pick the episodes that feature authors I love. (Mary Roach! Nathaniel Philbrick!)
Books on the Nightstand
For years (and I mean years — this puppy ran for 8 full years), this was my bookish podcast of choice. And then it ran its course, and it wrapped earlier this year. Thanks, Michael and Ann, for some good years of bookish conversation.
I’m aching to know… What are your favorite bookish podcasts?
