Read Aloud Revival with Sarah Mackensie
Read Aloud Revival features great children’s literature, young adult lit as well as author interviews. Their mission is to help you build your family culture around books. Everything connected with the Read Aloud Revival is a high quality production.
The podcast often lasts about an hour and is ad free. There is also a membership site with access to more shows and events. It’s a great resource for homeschoolers, teachers, librarians and anyone who loves children’s lit.
What Should I Read Next? with Anne Bogel
Novels for adults is the forte of What Should I Read Next? But, there is also a smattering of memoir, young adult, children’s lit, and non-fiction. Anne typically interviews one guest and asks them for three books they love, one book they hate and what they’re reading now. Then she gives them recommendations about books she thinks will match their tastes.
The strength of the show is hearing not only the basic premise for good books, but also emotional reactions and reading experiences as well. That gives readers a lot more to judge a book on rather than just other readers’ reviews.
Getting to know guests a little during the interview also helps listeners decide how similar their reading tastes are to the guest on the hot seat.
Read to Lead Podcast with Jeff Brown
The Read to Lead Podcast is aimed at business leaders. It’s a high quality podcast. Every episode that I’ve listened to has interesting guests and Jeff does a good job with interviews. I’d recommend it to anyone with an interest in good books related to productivity, business and leadership.
If you’re new to podcasts . . .
they can take a little getting used to. (Warning: They can get addictive! ) You can listen to them on your computer, which is what I usually do. You can also download them onto a device. That makes them perfect for exercise time, going for a walk or commuting.
