I love the podcast New Books in History not only because I love history and the host Marshall Poe makes sure I get a great history shot every week. It is also because NBiH has a great formula that objectively -I think- is particularly fit for podcast: interview by an informed reader with the author of a good book that just has come out.
Marshall Poe has been running NBiH for about three years now and seen this as well and is now expanding into all conceivable other fields. He has set up the New Books Network and is recruiting specialists from a wide range of disciplines to make their own New Books podcast. In potential NBN is offering next to NBiH a near hundred of other new podcasts, but most of them are filled with cross-posted content from NBiH, if at all. Working new podcasts in this collection are New Books in military history, public policy, psychoanalysis, law, and food. Especially the ones in Law and in Public Policy are off to a good start. I will be reviewing them soon you can expect.
