Pod­casts for the page-turn­ers

IT IS A TRUTH UNI­VER­SALLY AC­KNOWL­EDGED THAT IDLE BOOKLOVERS MUST BE IN WANT OF A BOOK-CLUB PODCAST.

AS IT’S FROWNED upon to walk down the road while read­ing from your smart­phone these days, not to men­tion un­safe, why not load your­self up with pod­casts in­stead? There are lit­er­ally hun­dreds of pod­casts out there that can call them­selves ‘book clubs’, but rather than lis­ten to them all and de­cide which were the best in terms of pro­duc­tion qual­ity or the fame of the pre­sen­ters, we thought we’d look for a se­lec­tion of shows with dif­fer­ent twists on the genre. Some of the fol­low­ing went with the ‘select a book and dis­cuss’ type of for­mat, which is prob­a­bly the most fa­mil­iar and pop­u­lar, but others de­cided to go for some­thing a lit­tle more ca­sual and broad, look­ing at how books in­flu­ence peo­ple’s lives and how the themes present in one book are pre­sented dif­fer­ently in others. If sim­ply read­ing books isn’t enough, here is a se­lec­tion of pod­casts ded­i­cated to all things books — fic­tion and non-fic­tion.
