Other helpful podcasts?
« on: February 18, 2015, 10:17 AM »
I have listened to all of the SCBWI "Conversations" podcasts. I love them and love hearing from professionals in the industry. I'm just wondering if anyone else knows of another resource for useful podcasts? Or maybe videos that it is not necessary to view? I've really enjoyed listening to these while I'm cleaning the house or running errands etc. I'd love if I could find something else similarly useful.

Thanks in advance for any help. :)

Check out the list of wonderful interviews with authors, illustrators, kid-lit notables, and everyone in between.

Yours truly was interview #52. Woo-woo.  ::-)

Writing Excuses (15 minutes long, weekly). Brandon Sanderson, Mary Robinette Kowal and a couple of others. They're SF writers/graphic illustrators but techniques are broadly applicable. Available free from the iTunes store or their website: http://www.writingexcuses.com/

I've recently discovered Matthew Winner's The Busy Librarian podcasts.
http://www.busylibrarian.com/

ETA: Oops. I clicked on tammi's link above and I see that Let's Get Busy is the same as The Busy Librarian podcasts. Sorry for the repeat. :stuck

Thanks!
