Author interviews
June 22, 2012 11:05 AM   Subscribe

"Book TV's After Words features the author of a recently published hardback non-fiction book interviewed by a guest host with some knowledge, background, or connection to the subject matter of the book." There's also a podcast version (link goes to XML feed), for those who'd rather listen. Many more non-fiction author interviews can be found at Booknotes (transcripts and streaming video). If your tastes run to interviews with authors of fiction, check out the BBC's Modern Writers archive. (BookTV (but not specifically After Words) previously, Booknotes (but before the series ended) previously.)

"journalists, public policy makers, legislators, and others familiar with their material."

Somehow I'm not so sure that public policy makers and legislators are remotely qualified to quiz these writers. Could be fascinating, could be a circle jerk.

Oh, and Nancy Pearl has a Book Lust podcast in which she interviews authors.

Thanks. I finally bought a pretty good podcast manager for my phone, and I've been looking for good book related podcasts.
