Open Culture on Future Tense (American Public Media)

We have a short inter­view air­ing today on Future Tense, an Amer­i­can Pub­lic Media pro­gram host­ed by Jon Gor­don. This pro­gram offers a dai­ly jour­nal of the dig­i­tal age, and today we’re talk­ing about the past, present and future of audio books, par­tic­u­lar­ly the pod­cast­ed kind. The con­ver­sa­tion weaves togeth­er a few things that we’ve dis­cussed here this week — H.G. Wells, Cory Doc­torow, Cre­ative Com­mons, the skewed pric­ing of audio books sold to con­sumers, etc. If you don’t catch it on the radio, you can lis­ten in here: MP3iTunesBlog.

On a relat­ed note, we also talked with Future Tense not too long ago about what uni­ver­si­ties are doing on the pod­cast front. If you want to give it a lis­ten, you can access it here: Mp3Blog.

Final­ly, see our col­lec­tion of audio book pod­casts as well as Jon Gor­don’s blog, wavLength.
