Customer Reviews

Sound quality is terrible, which is a shame for a good show

I like this podcast—a long form author talk/interview is important and much needed—but the sound quality is TERRIBLE. The mics on nearly every interview are poorly decibeled; you can usually hear the speaker breathing in a very awkward way, and many segments begin with a question similar to “can everybody hear me?” As a result, it is not a very listenable podcast, and moreover, it sounds quite amateurish. Surely there is someone in Washington D.C. who you could hire to make this podcast sound good. Otherwise, it suffers from not being at a competitive level with other podcasts. It does not sound like it was made by the intellectual, thoughtful people I know are behind it.

Need more clues

When I choose a podcast, even though there's a brief description of the book, it's not enough. I find myself listening and then closing that podcast because the subject is not what I expected. It would help if you would describe more specifically what the books concern. Other than that, I love this show and your store.

Descriptions Please

So a podcast from a bookstore that involves the authors talking about their books and the store wanting to sell the books can't tell you what the book is about? Just one descriptive sentence, is that so hard? Either that or all authors should be required to title their books, "This Book is About ...".
