I really wanted to like it

I'm a librarian and have been looking for good podcasts about libraries/ publishing, so I had high hopes. I've tried this podcast several times over the last year or so, but the lack of sound quality keeps me from subscribing. It's almost impossible to hear the hosts, even when I turn the volume ALL the way up in my car. And then when I finally can hear it, the hosts use almost no inflection in their voices, so it just sort of puts me to sleep. I mean for this to be constructive criticism because I'd love to be able to focus on what they're saying, but I've just never been able to get past audio and tone issues.

Awesome!

Rank #1: Hbook Podcast 2.10 - Series Wrap on Siân

Podcast cover
Read more
It's Siân's last week at Horn Book! (tear)

Roger and Siân mainly ramble in this episode. There was no plan. You can tell. :) They talk about Siân's new gig with Shelf Awareness, electronic books, the future of publishing, and they display an amazing lack of knowledge on how to protect the environment.

While this *is* a wrap on Siân, it doesn't mean the podcast won't continue in some form or another--Roger is interested in keeping the cast going but he's making no promises on when the next episode will air.

And from Siân: THANK YOU. Thank you all for listening and being a part of my little love project. I'm going to miss the podcast so very much and I appreciate every second of your time you've lost forever listening to me jabber. A hug to each and every one of you.
