Podcasts about books


Podcasts: they’re perfect to listen to when you’re doing household chores, on the road, or while exercising. And because we love to read at Flow, we’ve compiled a selection of podcasts about books.

Selected shorts

Short stories by emerging and established writers are brought to life when performed by experienced stage and film actors. Listen via iTunes or Soundcloud.

Slate’s Audio Book Club

This podcast enables you to become a member of a book club without having to leave your home. New and important books are discussed: read them yourself, then listen to the critics who discuss – sometimes rather heatedly – them. Listen on slate.com, as well as via iTunes and Stitcher.

London Review Bookshop

Fancy attending book and author events live via your smartphone? Then give this podcast a go. You can enjoy, for example, interviews with authors like Ali Smith or lively conversations between Gregor Hens and Will Self. The London Review Bookshop’s events are all recorded so you can enjoy them from wherever you are in the world. Listen on iTunes or Stitcher.

The New Yorker Fiction Podcast

Each month, one of the authors of the short stories published in the The New Yorker chooses to discuss a book by another author. The podcast is hosted by The New Yorker fiction editor Deborah Treisman. Listen on Newyorker.com/podcast/fiction or iTunes and Stitcher.
