Your Lit Review Has Arrived

Love this podcast. I listen during my mega commute to campus. I've learned a lot about new books coming out in the field.
It's a wonderful public service. Thank you!

Fascinating but flawed

The New Books podcasts do me a huge service by keeping me up to date on my field (American elections and public opinion) while introducing me to work is never have thought to read on my own. For example, I really enjoyed the recent episode on Buddhist politics in Myanmar.

However, they also occasionally remind me how much academics struggle to explain their work. Obviously these podcasts aren't aimed at a lay audience, but the interviewees often have trouble conveying why even another academic outside their subfield might care about their subject. And the interviewers sometimes seem indifferent when not talking about their own are; sometimes it feels like they're just skimming the chapter titles to guide their questions.

On the whole, though, very edifying podcasts and I'm extremely grateful to the people who volunteer their time to make them happen.
