The New Books Network
The "New Books Network" is a consortium of 70 podcast channels. Each channel is devoted to a particular field (history, biology, literature, law, etc.), hosted by an expert in that field, and features hour-long interviews with the authors of new books in that field. The podcasts are free and available on the "New Books" channels, by RSS, and on iTunes. We are seeking people who would like to participate in the project, both as hosts and editors. Those interested should contact Marshall Poe at For those who have written or would like to recommend a book to be featured on a "New Books" channel, we also welcome pitches.

What exactly would a "host" do?

Good question. Hosts: a) pick the books (and get them for free from publishers); b) arrange the interviews with the authors (no one refuses); c) do the interviews over Skype or Skype Out (recording them using some simple audio capture software like Audio Hijack Pro or Audacity); d) send the files to us for editing, composition (into radio-show like podcasts), posting, and distribution on the channels, RSS and iTunes.

That's pretty much it! Contact me for more details.
