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 firstname.lastname@example.org. For those who have written or would like to recommend a book to be featured on a "New Books" channel, we also welcome pitches.
