Print Run Podcast show

Print Run PodcastJoin Now to Follow

Print Run is a podcast created and hosted by Laura Zats and Erik Hane. Its aim is simple: to have the conversations surrounding the book and writing industries that too often are glossed over by conventional wisdom, institutional optimism, and false seriousness. We’re book people, and we want to examine the questions that lie at the heart of that life: why do books, specifically, matter? In a digital world, what cultural ground does book publishing still occupy? Whether it’s trends in the queries from writers that hit our inboxes or the social ramifications of an industry that pays so little being based in Manhattan, we’re here for it. Probably to laugh at it and call it names, but here for it nonetheless. Print Run is the happy-hour conversation after a long day at a catalog launch; it’s the bottle of wine you drink most of on a Tuesday when the manuscripts are no good. We’re for writers, for publishers, for anyone who’s opened a book and wanted to know—really know—what goes into getting the damn thing made. Join us. We’ll talk about the worst sex scene we’ve ever read and wonder aloud about how millennials will affect the books of the future. We’ll figure out why Jonathan Franzen wants to replace your child with a penguin and whether or not that penguin will be buying hardcovers when he grows up.

TALL TALE TV - Sci Fi and Fantasy Short Stories show

TALL TALE TV - Sci Fi and Fantasy Short StoriesJoin Now to Follow

An audiobook science fiction and fantasy short story narration podcast. I professionally narrate Audiobooks, speculative fiction, sci-fi &amp; fantasy stories from around the world every Monday and Friday. Most episodes are stand-alone short stories, with a few book excerpts and episodic audiobooks mixed in. From Epic fantasy to space opera, steampunk to urban sci-fi, and everything in between. This short story podcast is tailored to help bring authors and readers together, so each piece of fiction will include detailed information about that author to help you connect and find more of their work. Why did I start this podcast? In 2015 I went temporarily blind for the better part of a year. During this time I turned to audiobooks for escape. When I regained my sight I decided to become an audiobook narrator myself. This podcast is my journey and my gift back to the community. Find out more at http://www.TallTaleTV.com
