Listen to Librivox Community Podcast Show #57— Ductapeguy’s Podversary

This episode of the Librivox Community Podcast marks my (ductapeguy’s) one year anniversary of podcasting. To celebrate, Jim Mowatt and I had a wide ranging skype conversation. I really consider being a Librivox volunteer and helping to produce the community podcast was my University of Podcasting. During the conversation we talk about current news around the Librivox community, as well as my other podcasts, For the Sake of the Song, and White Trash Land.

Topics Discussed:

Librivox on Twitter

Sean’s Really Bad Review

Sean and Jim discuss a terrible user review Sean received on podiobooks.com and the librivoxian response to it. The discussion continued into the time honored, “What if I suck?” into styles of reading and the privilege and responsibility it is to be a reader of another person’s words.

Kara (kayray) and Henry drop by with this week’s stats.
