The Three Percent Podcast is a weekly(ish) conversation about new books, the publishing scene, international literature in translation, and many other random rants and raves. Chad W. Post of Open Letter Books and Tom Roberge of New Directions and Albertine Bookstore keep things irreverent, informed, and funny in a podcast that'll keep you up to date on the international literary and publishing worlds. Maybe. (Presented by Three Percent @ the University of Rochester.)

Customer Reviews

Three Percent Podcast

This has become one of my must-listen podcasts! The two hosts are knowledgable, funny and entertaining to listen to. I do wish they'd talk more about books, authors, translators and/or make recommendations. It may just be my impression - but their discussions seem to revolve around the publishing industry as a whole, rather than books and international literature.

Three Percent Podcast

Definitely one of my favorite podcasts. I found the podcast thanks to an alumni newsletter. I like hearing their views on the publishing industry. Chad and Tom aren't afraid to be blunt if they don't like something and praise things they like with as much passion. I've easily discovered a dozen authors since I started listening.

Opinionated, thoughtful, and engrossing

I always come away from listening to the Three Percent Podcast with at least four book added to my must-read list. I like that they have an opinionated take on the publishing industry and on books, authors, journals, and e-books. On the downside, I am offended by the anti-Cubs rhetoric, and sometimes they are completely wrong in their opinions (yes, one can have wrong opinions). And this is my new favorite podcast.
