I’m really really pumped about this announcement. It’s been in the works for a LONG time. I remember when I was there and we were just starting to talk about this…
The Library of Congress National Book Festival author interview podcasts are now available for subscription and download on iTunes. You can get both the 2008 and the 2007 interviews.

It’s SO exciting that the Library is now getting this media in a form that will be even more accessible and useful to Congress and the American people.
Please download these podcasts. They’re REALLY cool.
