National Book Festival Podcasts Now on iTunes

Yep, now it’s even easier to hear your favorite authors (interspersed, of course, with my best attempts at probing questions).

The 2008 National Book Festival author podcasts are now available via iTunes. (HUZZAH!) The direct subscription link is here (link opens in iTunes).

The 2007 National Book Festival podcasts have also been posted, but for some reason, I wasn’t able to get a direct link for those. If you have a burning desire to hear those, however, you can search iTunes for “2007 National Book Festival,” and it will pull up the subscription link. UPDATE: Here is the link for 2007 (link opens in iTunes).

I know, many of you are saying, “It’s about time.” Unfortunately, in the government, these things aren’t always as easy as flipping a switch. But we’re firmly committed to our march deep into Web 2.0 territory!

As always, you can also access all the NBF podcasts on our own site and download them or listen to the streams here.

And don’t forget, the 2008 National Book Festival is Saturday, Sept. 27, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. — free and open to the public! (If you listen to any of the podcasts, my apologies in advance for beating that particular message into the ground.)

    Move like this, into the digital age should be taken further into consideration and development by the government. Just chippin in my two cents of worth.

    Thanks for making these available as podcasts. Unfortunately, I get most of my “reading” done by listening in my car while commuting.
