Oh yeah, click here for your chance to win an Amazon Echo Dot to celebrate the end of our second season. I got an Echo Dot from producer Ken a few weeks ago and I am already addicted to it. I like playing Jeopardy
and other games on it since it is audio based it is accessible. I have even gotten Alexa to tell ‘Yo Mamma’ jokes which is a fantastic development.

Okay, so let’s get to the podcast plus portion of things by talking about this week’s show.

Podcast Plus: S2:E21 of Talking Audiobooks with Nina Munteanu and Dawn Harvey

I want to do a little something different on my blog. I’m hoping it will get me to write more often and will also help bring my blog and podcast closer together. I’m calling this Podcast Plus. It will be a post where I plug each week’s episode of the podcast but then offer some comments related to the episode that aren’t things you’d necessarily know by listening.

Season #2, Episode #21 of Talking Audiobooks can be found here. This one features an interview I did with author Nina Munteanu and narrator Dawn Harvey. That’s the podcast, the plus is below the cut.

I really should talk about each one because to only do them every now and then makes it seem as though I am playing favorites. That’s just not true, I enjoy each episode for one reason or another and hope that everyone listens to all of them, even though I know that’s not really realistic.
