Publishing Podcasts Galore !


Back on the 8th of November, I shared some marvelous free downloads from the Frankfurt Book FairPublishing Perspectives Podcasts

So, here come the freebies again in an article on Publishing Perspectives called, Podcasts for Frankfurt Book Fair’s Publishing Enthusiasts, And Beyond.

Here are some excerpts (you might need them to decide if you want to click that last link...):

“…there’s good listening for publishing people just about everywhere these days on the international podcast scene.”

Alert!

You may want to scroll down past the pictures of Christopher Kenneally and Orna Ross to this header:

International Books- and Publishing-Related Podcasts

Here are bits of the blurbs for those podcasts:

“…this podcast carries author interviews, behind-the-scenes information, and master classes from the literary scene in Hong Kong.”

~~~

“This is a science fiction and fantasy podcast from Pakistan…”

~~~

“This is an interview-based show in which local and international guests talk book publishing, especially in the Indian market.”

~~~

“This is a weekly ‘novel podcast’…”

~~~

“…both an online audio archive and a radio-style pan-African poetry show.”

~~~

“…writers from across the Penguin Random House division’s output.”

~~~

“Each podcast includes a compelling mix of readings and conversation.”

~~~

“This podcast is from the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies.”

~~~

“…for those who still are wild about Harry, this Potter podcast from the fan site…”

Rough estimate—10 hours of listening…

Language and the Refugee Crisis


A short but very sweet post today… 

I’m sure all of you (except, perhaps, those just returned from Neptune) have heard about the Refugee Crisis occurring across Europe.

Everyone with a political bent is debating—those with humanitarian concerns are hard at work

Germany has freely accepted the most refugees and may well end up welcoming over one million.

Every country accepting refugees faces the obligations entailed in helping them adapt to their new environment.

I was extremely happy to see an article in Publishing PerspectivesGerman Book Trade Says #RefugeesWelcome.

Here are just a few excerpts:

“German Publishers Langenscheidt and Reise Know-How have…made their vocabulary books and audiobooks available for free to those who work with asylum-seekers…”

“The German Publishers and Booksellers Association, the Frankfurt Book Fair and LitCam are also rallying together… The goal is to provide language-learning and educational centers in facilities close to refugee accommodations.”

“…the Frankfurt Book Fair is allowing free entry into the fair for refugees.”

My hat is off to the German Book-World for their efforts to support displaced members of our Human Family
