International Podcast day
Audiobooks & Airwaves: Listens by Authors with Podcasts

Friday, September 30th is International Podcast Day! We’re celebrating our audio-centric media sibling with audiobooks that were penned (and often narrated) by authors who are also podcast hosts. Some of these listens expand upon the content of the author’s show, while others try their hand at something new, like fiction or practical audio workbooks.
