Listen and Learn: 40 Podcasts for Indie Authors by Sheri Hoyte, Managing Editor, Reader Views
A couple of weeks ago, we talked about some of the best craft books for authors. We received a lot of great input, added a few mores sources to the list, and created a downloadable reference document for your use: Books on the Craft of Writing. We’ll be adding to this list periodically, so if you have a favorite “must-read” book on the topic, by all means, enlighten us!
This week, we want to share another list of resources on an ever-expanding medium: PODCASTS. Podcasts have been around for a while. Formerly known as audioblogs, they were all the rage after debuting in the digital world in the 1980s. Interest quickly waned however, resulting from a lack of distribution methods, and didn’t reemerge onto the scene until the early 2000s. Today podcasting has exploded into a multi-billion dollar industry! An Insider Intelligence report states that in 2022 podcast listeners account for over 20% of internet users!
There are countless podcasts available to authors. Some focus on the craft of writing, some feature interviews with authors (our Inside Scoop Live podcast is a mix of both), still others focus on grammar, writing prompts, and how to advertise or build your author platform.
The list below focuses on the independent or self-publishing world. As with our list of craft books for authors, we’ll build this list over time, so if you have one to add, let us know.
