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 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).
In this podcast, Infopeople’s book guy Michael Cart waxes enthusiastic about the comics and charts their gradual evolution from a single panel newspaper feature to today’s sophisticated graphic novels.

In this podcast George and Joan talk about the concept of place - not just library as place, but the very basic idea of locality and how we develop a sense of community - and of course, how it ties into libraries. This conversation was prompted by their experience at the Eureka!
