Announcing my new podcast: What Should I Read Next?

Announcing my new podcast: What Should I Read Next?

I’ve been saying for a few years now that this would never happen, but now it has, thanks to a combination of outsourced production and magical thinking: I have a new podcast and you can listen to it today.

It’s called What Should I Read Next?, and the idea came from the literary matchmaking series that used to run on this blog. In that series, readers would tell me 3 books they loved, 1 book they hated, and what they were currently reading, and I would recommend 3 books for their TBR list.

I loved the series but found myself wishing we could talk about their picks before I made any recommendations, and wishing there was an easy way for us to do that. I finally realized that a podcast was the perfect forum for the bookish conversations I’d been dreaming of.

This new show is dedicated to book talk, reading recommendations, and literary matchmaking. Every week I’ll talk all things books and reading with one guest, but the ultimate goal is to help YOU find your next read.

Please help me spread the word so we can connect with our fellow readers and podcast fans! Subscribe to the show (details below), leave a rating in iTunes, follow the show’s new instagram account.

This has been so much fun so far (even though I still have so much to learn!) I’m looking forward to many happy conversations to come about all things books and reading.

    Just listened to episode 1 and I just want to say THANK YOU! This is exactly the kind of conversation I love, so it was such a treat to listen to on my morning commute. Cannot wait to hear more!

    Hi! I just started listening to your podcasts and so far I’m really enjoying them. And now I found my way to you website. Yay! I just have one question: can you do anything to equalize the volume between yourself and your guest on the podcast? I have to change the volume depending on who’s talking. But that’s really a minor complaint. Thanks for the show!

    I love, love, love your podcast! Keep it up! It’s such a great platform to hear different people’s perspectives on a lot of books in a straightforward way. What other literary podcasts do you listen to or recommend?

    Hi Anne

    I am a portuguese listener of your podcast and i love how you connect with your guests.
    I am a blogger – a fairly new one at that – and i am tempted to try podcasting.
    Have you ever considered having a foreign listener´s WSIRN episode?

    Congrats on your great podcast!
