UP!–PODCAST Paradise 2! :)


OK, so…the bulk of this post was published WAY back in 2016. I revisited it for my own sake, wanting to listen to a podcast. It having been so long, I figured to check all the links. I’m VERY happy I did because a few were defunct and a couple weren’t correct! That aggravates me, considering how careful I try to be.

It was launched through Mugglenet, whose team was attending and hosting all kinds of events pre-Deathly Hallows, and broadcasting Live. I didn’t get to hear any of it, and not until JUST NOW, when I googled it for this post, did I know they’re still doing it! 😎

Anyway, it was not until I became active on Twitter a few years ago, and wove my way into its wonderful online community of KidLit, did “podcast” come up again. That’s when “Let’s Get Busy” with host Matthew Winner became one of my favorite pastimes. It was the first one I began listening to regularly, “falling in love” with the experience. Some time after that, I discovered Nick Patton and his “Picturebooking” podcasts. Since then I’ve come across others, most of them KidLit-related, but the truth is—podcasts abound! Just do a search for “podcasts + any subject” and chances are, you’ll find something 🙂
