I don’t have an iPod or any other digital audio device, so the recent craze for podcasts has somewhat passed me by – though I occasionally will listen to one on my PC. I have, however, noticed the recent emergence of literary podcasts. Here are a few I’ve noticed so far.

Know of any other literary podcasts? Leave a comment and I’ll add them to the list.
