BookExpo Aftermath Includes Dueling Podcasts

For all you folks who didn’t get to go to BookExpo America, you can still listen to the official BEA podcasts, which so far include speeches by Tim Russert and John Updike and a five-minute interview with Pat Schroeder. But you can also listen outside the box and download the interviews Ed Champion conducted with various BEA attendees and exhibitors as he wandered through the aisles and meeting rooms. His first installment includes sound bites from several bloggers (including, I freely disclose, myself making some asinine comments about liking The Long Tail because “it’s nice to see Wired being relevant again”) as well as novelists Michelle Wildgen and Delia Falconer. Funnily enough, the first section of Champion’s roundup includes a brutal analysis of the podcasting panel BookExpo just released in their slew of recorded programs…No word yet, however, on whether that lineup is going to include the confrontation between Champion and Sam Tanenhaus.
