Heard anything good lately? (or iThomas on iTunes)


If you have ever been to My Porch before, you have also probably been over to Savidge Reads. Simon Savidges’s blog was one of the first blogs I stumbled across as I began to discover the book blogging world. Well, Simon is a busy, busy boy and has about a million bookish endeavors going on at any given time. Among his more impressive efforts has been his ongoing podcasts. One, called You Wrote the Book, has Simon interviewing all sorts of interesting authors (including the wonderful Maggie O’Farrell).  The other, called The Readers, is a cavalcade of book based banter with book blogger Gavin.

That is until now.

Gavin has decided to take a bit of a podcasting sabbatical. Into the gaping breach, yes, that’s right, Simon asked me if I would join him in his fortnightly podcast.  So last week was the first episode of The Readers featuring yours truly (episode 81). I had a ton of fun recording it with Simon and can’t wait to record the next one. Hopefully listeners will have fun as well.

Yours truly recording my first episode of The Readers.

    Excellent news! I'll have to start listening again.

    Very cool!! It was neat to hear your voice. Your voice matches what I hear in my head when I read your blog.

    Awesome, I'm clicking on that link to listen to you both :)

    Just finished listening, and really enjoyed it. It's always nice to put a voice with a face. I commented over there (and even gave you an author to try), and will have to be a better listener. Must try to figure out the iTunes subscription thing. It proved to be the perfect Friday afternoon activity for me today. Looking forward to more – have a great weekend!

    My dear Thomas, I could listen to you and Simon talk all day long. You two got on like house on fire. Have a wonderful weekend.

    Best wishes, ASD

    Loved the podcast! Hope you'll let us know when we can listen to the next one.

    You're all downloaded and will be excellent company on my walk with Deacon tomorrow morning!

    I've been listening to The Readers for quite some time now, so I'll be looking forward to hearing you join in! I save these for my commute, so it's on the phone ready to go for tomorrow!
