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 Michael Cart indulges his passion for Southern fiction by devoting an entire podcast to North Carolina writer Ron Rash and his remarkable new novel Serena. What a story!
In this latest edition of Thinking Out Loud, George and Joan look at children's literature and the kid's books that have had the most lasting impact on them. The messages in these books, as it happens, aren't just for kids! Titles discussed include "The Emperor's New Clothes," "Stone Soup," Many Moons," and "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz."
In this podcast, Infopeople’s book maven Michael Cart mourns the loss of legendary author (and recluse) J. D. Salinger and muses about the current age of authorial self-promotion (tell-all memoirs, anyone?).
The last economic upsurge was driven by lawyers, bankers, accountants and the like. What will drive the next wave? Some say it will be a "creative economy." Some qualities of a creative worker: curiosity, humor, quirkiness. How does this potentially impact libraries? Listen to George and Joan's latest podcast and find out!
In his latest podcast, Infopeople’s resident book reviewer, Michael Cart, talks about the curious history of the review and its even more improbable prospects for the future (get out your hankies for this one!). Oh, and welcome back, Kirkus!
In his latest podcast, Infopeople's unofficial ambassador to the book world, Michael Cart, reports on an official ambassador (you'll have to listen to find out who it is) and then shifts gears to talk about the world's first consulting detective -- you won't need to listen to know that was Sherlock Holmes!
