Infopeople produces original podcasts from George and Joan (George Needham and Joan Frye Williams), Michaal Cart, and other presenters. Topics range from book and graphic novel reviews to the future of libraries.
In this podcast, Infopeople's book guy takes a look at the world of audio and other multmedia-type books. From Simon & Schuster's "vooks" to Playaway audio books, it's a brave new world of listening (and reading) out there. Is print dead? You decide (with some help maybe, from Michael!).
In this edition of Thinking Out Loud, George and Joan share their thoughts about some of the discussions they participated in during ALA Midwinter in Boston. One of the big topics of conversation: alternative revenue streams for libraries.
In his first podcast of the new year, Infoeople's resident book reviewer, Michael Cart, muses on the recent death of the venerable review journal "Kirkus Reviews" and worries a bit about the continuing migration of print to digital forms. Happy New Year, indeed!
In a rare holiday humor Infopeople's book guy Michael Cart wallows in sentimentality in this podcast, singing the praises of Dickens' immortal A CHRISTMAS CAROL and the enduring delights of reading aloud. Can you guess how many copies he has? 17!
In his latest podcast, Infopeople's resident book maven Michael Cart speculates about what the book of the future will look like (hint: maybe a lot like the book of the past -- long past, as in the Victorian Age).
