Bob Woodward Announces Audiobook With Hours of Trump Interviews

"This news coming from mediaite Bob Woodward announced that he is releasing an audiobook. Folks, just hear me on this, just hear me on this. It's one thing to sit down for an interview. And tell the reporter, you can't record me. You have to take notes because then when the book comes out, you can always get up in front of the cameras and your defense can be, they misquoted me, it's fake news, I never said that. And you might be able to get away with it. But that's not what happened. Bob Woodward is releasing an audiobook featuring more than 8 hours of interviews with former president Trump. And guess what? CNN, the most profane name in news. Crying Negro network. Thank you, John Joe Brown, always there for a comment. CNN got an exclusive listen. New York Times correspondent and CNN analyst Maggie haberman, oh, did I mispronounce my apologies? Analyst. It's Tuesday. CNN analyst Maggie haberman currently sets atop the publishing world with her controversial, but much buzzed about but confidence man the making of Donald Trump and the breaking of America. But she could soon have stiff competition. According to a new report from CNN's, Jamie dangle. Elizabeth Stuart and Jeremy is an herb or herb. I'm not sure if the HSI Lu or not.

Charlie on the Importance of Being a Lifelong Learner

"The final thing that I would say, boy, at age 11, kind of just a really good kind of go to reference and go to book. For anybody of any age, is kind of the timeless work of our founding fathers, anything that they wrote from the federalist papers or their private journals are just great to go to. But I gave you enough references. So dive into those, be a lifelong learner, and find out here's something I wish someone would have told me at 11. Find out the best way you learn. If you read books best, do that. If you listen to audiobooks, do that if you're a visual person, do that. And I wish someone would have told me that earlier, because I'm the best at listening. I listen to books all the time. Some people aren't that way. I'm an okay reader. I just love consuming information audibly. I just remember it better. God bless you, malachi. Thanks for being here.

"Only thing it is very her prose is so beautiful. And it's very quotable. And that is painful for me with audio. I will say that's one time that I do slow it down and I will replace something like 20 times to copy the quote, you know, because there are times, I'm like, I have got to write that thing down. So it's tedious when you're listening, but sometimes I do it. Yeah. Well, we would love to hear what you recommend for audiobooks. We're always looking for ones that people have listened to and have enjoyed that audio experience. But before we wrap up today, we wanted to share our give me one. This one is one author you'd write a letter to and who would write back. And this comes from one of our listeners Jody, who's also a longtime friend of Jens. Sarah, what is your pick? I feel like this is probably anti climatic if you listen to. But mine would be John Green because I love him. And I think he's very interesting and I'm socially awkward. So I like in the parentheses with this one because it's awkward to have dinner or something with an author, but I would love, I love to write and I'm much better in writing than in person. So I would love to write him a letter and be his pen pal. So John Green, if you're listening, let's say you can pass. That is a great pick. And yes, I should say that the whole thing was an author you'd write a letter to and who would write back because having lunch with said author, would just be awkward because you don't actually know them. So yes, to give the context there, I agree that that would be very uncomfortable. Jen, what's your pick? So I am picking Stephen King, and I will just say realistically, he probably would not write back because, you know, he's really famous and I imagine he gets a lot of letters. But I don't care. I am rereading on writing his book on writing a memoir of the craft because I am teaching with my students. And it has been since I was in the classroom before. So it's been 5 plus years since I've read it, but up until then I read it every year with my students. So I've probably read this one ten or 15 times. And diving back into it has just reminded me of what I love about Stephen King's work that he loves writing so much and is so grateful for reading and for the stories that have gotten him through experiences. And I just always love having that conversation with my students. Of course, about writing, but also about finding the thing that you love and being grateful for it. He loves his family. So yeah, I love Stephen King's books, but I also love just his outlook on life and on his gratitude for the life he's been given. And so I would love to write him a letter and just tell him how much he's meant to me over the years and how much he means to my students. That's great, yeah. Yeah, and I love his work too, Jen, but I agree that it is thinking about people who is not just that you love their writing, but also their attitude toward life. Yeah. Yeah. What about you, Ashley?.

"And so it's just a great one for audio because I think that you're getting this in depth inside look at a single person. And I loved hearing her voice and I felt like I really knew her and kind of walked with her on her journey because of the audio experience. So I just thought it was a phenomenal audio experience, but just to tell you a little bit more about the book, we find out pretty early on that she is in America, her mom is also in America, but they are from Ghana. And we also know that her dad and her brother are no longer in the picture, but we don't exactly know why. And so that happens early on and you can see that we're in the present time and her mom is having a lot of trouble. She and her mom are not in the same place in America. And so she gets contacted. As an adult, she needs to go home and help her mom. And so we see that early on happening and having her mom struggling with some mental health issues. And then we get the backstory and the unpacking of what leads to this moment of her as a scientist in the lab doing the day in and day out work of figuring out addiction. And what makes it happen in the brain? And I just thought all of it was so fascinating. I felt like Jesse masterfully handles the exploration of addiction in a way that is really eye opening. It made me think a lot of we've talked a lot about Beth Macy's dope sick. On here and this one certainly is fiction instead, but it was eye opening in a similar way for me and just looking at addiction in a very scientific and factual way. And trying to figure out what makes it happen. And so I thought all of that was really interesting. And then I also loved the exploration of culture and how we bring our culture with us and how that culture changes as we get into a new environment. So we see that for her, but also for her mom as her mom, she lives in the south and so there's just this really interesting combination of her in a rural area of Alabama, the parent and them growing up there. And then what that's like in an area where they're not used to many people who come from other countries and they don't necessarily have a whole lot of experience with people who were born somewhere else who kind of bring a culture with them. I just thought, oh that was really richly done. So I absolutely loved it, and then like I said, I think the audio was so great because of the really focused exploration of gifty and her as a character. So that's yeah, Jesse is transcendent kingdom and it would be great on friend, but I absolutely love the audio. I love that book. So much. And I did read it in print. So that kind of makes me want to go back and listen to Bon turpin because yes, I think she elevates anything she reads. That's been on my list for so long. Yeah, I think you would love it, Sarah. And I think some of what we talked about earlier about how books kind of comment on each other or comment on a topic in an interesting way. I felt like this did that of just that exploration of identity and also about how our brains work and how we do and don't have control over that. I thought all of that was just really interesting..

"And then lastly, Zelda is a trained chef that has been used working and really upscale restaurants, but because she's a woman, she is I go from a restaurant and she there's an entanglement with another chef that she's kind of trying to avoid and she comes to this small village where all these women live. All the perspectives are alternating and they are all competing in this competition to be a co host of the kitchen front, radio program, which normally is hosted by a man, but they gasp felt like they needed a woman's perspective since they are the ones doing the cooking because he is talking about making use of rations, but he is not the one he does not cook. So that's kind of where that's kind of the premise of the story. They are competing with each other to become the co host of this kitchen front radio show. And this book is just lovely. I mean it is it has so many things in it that I just have not read in World War II historical fiction before. I really loved all this all the things about these women and their different lives. And then the audio like I said, just brought it to life for me. So I think it is an excellent book. I think the audio is excellent, but I think you would also enjoy it if you read it in the hardcover. It is just really good. Jennifer Ryan has written a lot of really popular books. She wrote the chill berry ladies choir. So I mean, that's a really well-known popular book, but this one, I just loved it. So that is Jennifer Ryan's the kitchen front. I think that sounds so amazing, Sarah. And I love thinking about that one on audio specifically. It is really good. I mean, I have not, I mean, I think it's been very popular and I have not heard anybody say anything bad about it. I mean, it just shows a lot of different perspectives. And I really appreciated that. From a lot of different social classes and it has a lot of struggle, but it's just hopeful and it's just so good. I love it. It's a nice to get another perspective, a different perspective on World War II. Also. Yeah, because.

"She has some popularity and in some notoriety because she is a beauty expert and so she has like Instagram thing and kind of just like social media fame. And so people recognize her and she is an influencer, but then she's kind of got this interesting fame angle. But she's at this party and she is really interested to she's gotten all dressed up and you can tell that she is so excited to meet this person, Dave. And he is at the party. And so she's kind of building up her confidence and there's just some interesting scenes leading up to that. But basically, you get to this moment where she goes to talk with him. And in her mind, he is dying to meet her and she has gotten access to this party as a way to make that happen. And she's expecting an unbelievably warm reception because they have been messaging a lot on social media. And normally, she's not very interested in that kind of thing, but he had the verified account and everything. So she felt like when he reached out and then they had this great connection and this great chemistry that that was really worthwhile to pursue. So she goes up to him and gets ready to talk with him and he has no idea who she is. And she's horrified. And then quickly you see Dave's perspective on it. And I just thought all of that was really rich. So you get this glimpse into her. She's a great character and you really hurt for her because again, she has every reason to think that he has this ongoing Internet relationship with her and that he's gonna be so thrilled to meet her in person and then he just is completely astounded by who she is and is trying to get her to explain and of course she's devastated. So she doesn't want to explain who she is. And then we see him and he is in a kind of tenuous position with his career and is trying to help his family to have some success. So he is famous and he's had a lot of Bollywood success, but his family doesn't have the financial security that people perceive them to have. And so he has made this move to America. He's trying to get things settled. And we get a really interesting glimpse into his life with his knees right away. And how he's trying to care for her. He's lost his brother. He's trying to take care of the knees..

"I've only ever owned one car. She was my first grownup purchase. After graduation it became quickly evident. That the scooter. I'd used zip around campus. Wasn't going to cut it on the streets of seattle. My dad helped me find her on e. bay. She was a used. Two thousand two hyundai santa fe with skin peppered and dense. She'd previously been involved in a rollover situation but her guts were unharmed while her previous owner wasn't thrilled at the thought of hanging onto an imperfect vehicle. I was poor and open to the idea. She costs seven thousand dollars. It was a fortune. Then let's be honest also now but she seemed worth it as she was sturdy. Safe and even trendy. If you squinted your eyes and allowed for creative liberties. I was bigger than still swollen with the possibilities of the lives. I might lead a wealthy novelist a stylish professor or quirky artist a journalist and actor or maybe a movie director but most of all a dancer. Fuck i wanted to be a dancer so badly in made my stomach hurt if i reflected on it too long as i couldn't possibly want something that much and not get it. I was certain everything would work out. I drove the santa fe. Too many exotic locations my retail jobs. My performing jobs might teaching jobs. My dance students thought she was cool. And everyone knows high-schoolers get to decide these things. I started a dance company. I piled costumes props and dancers into the santa fe and drove them to every show. I could book. my friends. were beginning to quit dance. Giving up the old dream for husbands and office jobs. I decided to be better than that. I was going to dance forever. I was probably going to drive the santa fe forever because there was no way i'd ever afford another car on what i was making foreshadowing. I hold onto

"Just like having some company on these walks so that i don't get lost in my own thoughts but what i love about audiobooks is that it feels more visceral to me sometimes than reading and it like. I love audiobooks across spectrums. Especially you know. I love listening to jasmine galleries. Books and i just love also nonfiction. Which is what we're here to talk about. Yeah we decided we were going to focus today. Non fiction We're going to do three recommendations total. You're gonna kick us off cat. What is your first nonfiction audiobook recommendation. So my first nonfiction audiobook recommendation is heavy by kissy laymen. And that book is just so incredible. He narrates it himself and i. I listened to it a couple years ago. When i was on a long drive and the memoir is about. Kfc's sort of coming into his self and addiction with both eating and gambling and it's written as a direct address to his mother and so much of it is about how his mother kind of helped shape who he was not only as a person but also as a writer and the form of direct address. Especially when it's narrated by the author that also just has so much power because not only do you feel as though you know. You're kind of positioned as his mother listening but it just lends itself this other sense of intimacy and then also of course the way. He narrates the book the way he so lovingly so tenderly portrays his mother and other people in his life. It just really brings everything to life in a way that a special and it actually took me a long time to sit down and finally read the book. After i finished listening to it but when i read it i also understood that there was so much that i might have missed in either form and being able to toggle kind of back and forth between both forms audiobook and then also just reading it physically fell kind of like a gift like it was just a whole other book yeah. I'm happy that you started off with a memoir. Because i also think memoir is is a kind of audio book that i particularly gravitate toward because you are very often. You're hearing people read in their own voice. Not always but very often and i a lot of times that's very very effective so your first pick was a very kind of intimate and personal memoir. My pick is a much more sort of sprawling piece of nonfiction. It has a personal but it also has history. It is susan orleans the library book. This is a big book. It is a long audio book. It is a long book imprint. She writes these kind of deep narrative nonfiction kind of looks at different things in in history or out in the world. They keys off of the nineteen hundred eighty fire at the los angeles public library. And you know some of it is a who done it about like who did this like. Who's the investigation into the fire. Because they fairly quickly concluded that it was arson so some of it is bought but some of it is also a massive history of los angeles and of the library the concept of the library the concept of the public library the challenges to public libraries in kind of contemporary society whereas a lot of people know they're one of the few places that still are open and available to un housed people to people who need services that they are no longer getting. The public library has been kind of into some of those situations so partly this is a history of the whole idea of public libraries and also this specific library system and how it came to be what it is and i think at the same time she also writes beautifully about and this is kind of a weird thing to say but she writes beautifully about the fire itself and about the destruction of the fire. About how devastating a fire in a building like that can be and then about the restoration process. What it took to save what they could and obviously many many things could not be saved but one of the few ways that you can sometimes for example rescue books that have been in a fire and often that means they've gotten soaked by water from firehoses is to freeze them. Oh wow so there's a whole thing about. Where do you find enough freezer space for that many books from the los angeles public library. So it's a fascinating piece. I love this book. I love her way of delivering. It and it is such a feat. I think of performance to be able to take something. That is so long because one of the tricks. With long non-fiction you can't skim right. And a lot of people will skim off of long along nonfiction. That's one of the reasons. I sometimes like big brick books of history. I often don't listen to audio books. This one the fact that her performance makes it kind of something that i could stick with all the way through i think is really a feet so i i love that one. It's susan orleans. The library book. So what is your What is your second pet cat. So my second pick is another memoir but this one You know this was a book that i was a little nervous to read because it is quite. It's about sexual assault. It is no my name by chanel. Miller and of course people might be familiar with the details of her case And they might have come to her case before they understood or knew who she was. This was the case of a person who is named emily dough by the court and sort of the media and she was sexually assaulted by a stanford student and this book is also narrated by schnell miller. And when i i listened to it i just. I couldn't stop. It was repulsive but it also felt so much like an act of reclamation rate where a lot of the book kind of details her trial it details the memory of the assault itself it details. How she kind of came into her own. And there's a lot of text in it where you can tell that. She's really speaking to herself. And she also i think in practice is a spoken word artist and recites poetry and she has this performance of nature. That itself is so powerful. And i think that there's something about it that fell really empowering to listen to and just the language is so lyrical and beautiful and it really felt like i was understanding and witnessing and listening to something unfold felt so deeply personal in a way that feels so unique to audiobooks. Yeah and i think a lot of people. I encountered her because she read a statement at the sentencing of the person who sexually assaulted her. Yes and that statement was later published. A lot of people got an opportunity to read what she had said. But you know it. There is something we talk figuratively. So much about people having an opportunity to use their voice or discover their voice and With a memoir like this an audio book you'll also get an opportunity to have the person kind of literally use their voice and speak in their own voice right and tell their own story and there's a reason why that's what we mean by a person using their voice yes especially when you know she just didn't have a chance or opportunity really to represent herself in this case or even to the media and it's really actually kind of moving to me to see her as a writer and person sort of inhabit her own space. She also has a really lovely instagram presence. Where she's an artist too and she kind of cartoons and draws and doodles and she's really funny and you just you hear that in the book to and so. I felt that her audio book was really special. And i was so glad that she narrated. Yeah so cats. I pick was heavy by. Tsa lehman my peck was the library.

Donna Barrow-Green, Creator and Producer at Illuminus Audio Productions, on Episodic vs Serialized Fiction Podcasts

"So what makes a fiction. Podcast literary most fiction. Podcasts are somewhere between episodic in syria. You can jump in on any episode and you won't be totally lost. Each episode has a problem a story like a story of the week and that problem is usually solved by the end of the show. Saint characters say world likely of protagonist has a super objective and their subplots plots yet. The story is not usually bound by a larger plot. Structure serialized literally podcasts. On the other hand are sequence and have to be listened to it water as the story builds listeners. Make an investment for the big payoff in reveal at the end. You have a problem with conflict in every episode that engages the listener but these subplots are leading up to a bigger story arc. Consider the tv show matinee. This is a good example of episodic show with evolving plots. Now compare this to handmaid's tale. This story is serialized. Deep investment in the characters theme and most of all the story long form fiction podcasting tells the story that evolves and develops along one narrative structure over the course of a set number of episodes.

"Collection called discussions and arguments from which this reading is taken whereas the first lecture considered the times of anti christ. This second lecture takes up the topic of the religion of anti christ and addresses the question of whether the antichrist will profess any particular religion at all according to newman. The answer from the fathers on this matter is complicated and that is because the relevant prophecies concerning the subject seem at first blush incompatible on the one hand and he christ will not only reject christ in god the father but he will oppose all religion all worship old that is cold gone on the other hand however the anti christ will be mistaken for the christ that is to say he will impersonate the messiah and therefore have some connection to jewish custom ritual even to the temple itself further complicating. This picture is the prediction that he will usher in a novel. Form of false worship to the exclusion of all others and that he will do so even as he restores. The old roman empire to this point newman recalls some remarkable features of the french revolution. The memory of which was still relatively fresh in his day. Illustrating how in newman's words the course of events has shown to us in these latter times that there are ways of fulfilling sacred announcements. That seem at first sight. Contradictory has with the first lecture. This president installment is an exhortation to take seriously prophecy concerning the anti christ and to renewed confidence in the guiding hand of god's providence through history and in the already accomplished.

"Walk that back to seven years down to ninety days so if you end up going exclusive. Acs and you decide you know what. I wanna move out. I want to go to non exclusive distribution three. Acs trout find way. Voices audiobooks unleashed and so on so forth. That's probably going to be the path for you if you're fifty fifty though folks. Sorry you stuck. It sucks unless you end up buying out the audio book rights from the narrator Fifty fifty means year there for the full seven years. So that won't help you at all so exclusives non-exclusive in ninety days though. That's that's not a bad thing. So i really kind of like that and the thing that just rolled out last week was the fact. They finally put a returns column so a column that is completely separate. Now they're only going to be accounting for returns done as of january twenty twenty one. They're not looking at doing retroactive refunds. Or paying you back for any of that stuff. That was done last year. So essentially anything. That's returned you will be able to see inside your dashboard into a separate column. Which was a huge deal to me. I thought it's it's. It's better that we know what they're taking from so we can kind of addressing economic concerns. That might be happening there so one about returns. What about the fact that there's going to be someone out there that listens to your audiobook within one day returns and tries to check those things out. We just. It's going to be a lot of trust. But one thing i would recommend to. The team would be something that would be something like true returns so if a person say has consumed less than twenty five percent of the content just throwing out an arbitrary number here content they decide. They don't like it. They want to return. I totally think that's totally fine. But if someone listens to the entire book they've consume that whole thing. It's like sitting down. Have a meal again. At mcdonald's i'm gonna go to this on up. Oh hey could you give me refund. It was all right. But i mean man you know what i mean. Give me more food. Oh you're going to be food. Fantastic all right.

"Youtube podcast gets subscribed today all right. So let's go into things. We're gonna talk about a little bit. What's been going on with audible in ac axe. Here's the timeline. I'm a kinda give a rough time. Line. 'cause starts to kind of fall apart after a bed. I tried to track. Everything's best could back in october. Of twenty twenty there was a bit of an issue inside the dashboards and acs was very communicative in telling their rights holders or the narrators and rightsholders being the authors and such there was a discrepancy. What they called a technical glitch. And i'm using quotation marks here with this and this it revealed some irregularities meaning that okay normally whenever a customer buys an audio book. They're given the opportunity to refund it behind the scenes. What would end up happening. Is there was no refund column within the dashboard. So they just naturally took in subtracted away from the credits that were within the acs account known would be none the more wary unless of course they started out in negative one and then they probably just assume that all well i had audiobook return. Well this technical glitch that revealed some irregularities included that all of these things had bottleneck so another refunds for these rights holders and so everyone got their accounts slammed like some into the negatives. It was absolutely crazy. Why is this a problem. Let's let's go and dressed is first of all from the listeners side of things the audible customer and of course the rights holder. Such as someone like you that. Listen to this podcast. So here's how refunds worked worked previously for customers. They can return their audio book for any reason whatsoever within the first year and they get a full refund. Now there's no apparent limitations to this though audible insisted some limitations on returns meaning that if someone proved to be problematic. Like they're always returning audiobooks and the kind of pushing back and they're going on. You can't do that. So what i would like to point out. Though is there was a quote and this is within a great group called fair deal for rights holders narrators. I'ma talk a little bit more about that a little bit later on facebook. And here's a screen shot they had shared and inside that screenshot. This person on a reddit thread like braggadocious..

"To do the exact same thing. La is is neat. I mean i was new yorker my whole life and i'll always be a new yorker and that can't take the city out of the boy but la is a playground they have one industry that show business and it. It really is a playground where you can make up your own story and tell your story. People are in the business of of telling stories so tell a good story and and it looks like you could sell tickets to it and you might have interest. Can't you do that to an extent in new york. New york is a big theater city and you can. Do you know stage in. Stand up in that kind of stuff there in into potentially give that up to go out to la in in a lotta ways almost start over. Yeah i am starting over in some ways Although i did mostly stage on the east coast because that's mostly what there is. Yeah it's more live theater but the business model of live theater is not as lucrative as a business model of active income versus passive income so in live theater when the curtain comes down. I mean you could sell emerge but you're not getting any more money out of that audience whereas the whole model of recorded media you could show it over and over and over and over years years after it's been made But i came out here. And the main thing i've been focusing on. The last year is voiceovers particularly animation. So when the lockdown happened i thought. Okay what can i do now. That door is closed. So i i found a clothes closet in my bedroom and i built a sound studio. Oh nice i figured out how to do it. Did my research talk to a lot of people and through my punch you know and then how do you find as a voice over artist. Is it through your agent or is it through like online sites like backstage. Well you know. i'm. I'm kind of figuring it out. I mean i've gotten some stuff through backstage. They're actors access Through network. I mean like like you know. They always say it's who you know. Show businesses of business of networking know when i've written and produced stuff reach out to my friends. I reach out to people in my circle. Who i think could do it. And that's the way it's just so To to anyone start hatton show business. My first advice is don't be an asshole because people remember that it's a small business. Be nice to everyone you meet but the best As long someone that tack the best advice about show business. I think i ever heard was from steve martin and he said my advice to young players. Be so good that they can ignore you. And i think that's brilliant because a lot of us focus on the marketing i or you know where you gotta focus on getting as good as you can improving your craft becoming a better actor voice artist or whatever it is and that's rewarding for its own sake is well. Yeah how do you continue to improve your craft. Because you've obviously been doing it for awhile. You know what you're doing a lot of ways. So so what does somebody with your level of experience to to kind of keep practicing and improving short a great question. I do two things. One is always studying. I've been in an animation class since the summer and always reading this. You know we live in a wonderful age where you can go on the web and learn anything. There's a there's a webinar youtube video for anything. You wanna learn anything. So there's there's no excuse but the other thing is i'm a big fan of experiential learning. So what i mean by that. Is i decided when i was a young man. That's going to be an active. Got in shows. And i figured i'd learn in front of an audience and that's what i did and the things you can learn in front of an audience that you can never ever learn in class. And so just don't be afraid. Don't wait 'til you're ready. Just jump in get cast in something act in our put something on with your friends time as you you know. We're we're we're in. We're in a chess game and the are opponents this time and eventually eventually time calls checkmate. But now until you know. I think So many of us are programmed to wait. Just wait and don't wait. I was in a marriage for many years. Waited very happy to be. A father waited till my kids grew up. And then and then i you know i called it a day. It just wasn't a good marriage. And i wanted something better and as far as l. a. Also i've always hated the cold weather. New york winters are not kind. Yeah yeah. I remember. When i was a kid. Growing up in queens. I saw something on television. Actually they were. They were rioting in watts. In the in the sixties and my first thought is wait a minute. They have warm weather there palm trees. They've nice looking houses. What are they upset about. I didn't understand about racial injustice. But i also as soon as i found out there was a warmer place to live like. What the hell are we doing here. Why are we in new york in one degree and snows at snow in my boots. And so i love that aspect. I live in a really nice Complex with swimming pool and it's just fantastic. Nice so. I want to get back into musicals really quickly. If you don't mind sure sure so like you writing a musical like you're you're writing dialogue. You're writing music. Are you also writing the actual music as well or does somebody else do that portion. Well as you know Show biz is a collaboration particularly live theater. So my specialty is lyrics and often the lyricist also becomes the book rider. Because they're a word person there but I can sing. I can play a few instruments. But i don't have the level of skill to actually write a score so certain Anything i've written. I've collaborated okay. And it's a it's a wonderful moment to hear your words being set to music and you know your baby. Now has closed his walking. So do you. So you have the lyrics and then you hand them over to the music person and then they create attuned.

More specifically sir strumming is canned fermented herring that in and of itself doesn't sound that bad. There are many fermented foods that we eat and we have no problem with them. Yogurt sauerkraut and kimchi are all fermented foods. And no-one freaks out at the idea of eating them from inflation is an ancient form of food preparation by the breakdown. Food via microorganisms like bacteria and yeast all well and good cover. There's another process of breakdown of food via micro organisms in that is called rotting serse roaming toes the line between fermentation and rotting the history of sir strumming goes back to at least the sixteenth century when we can find the first written mention of the food however the food might be very well older than that as from. It is a pretty old process. The legend of sir strumming holds that it was accidentally created by fishermen who didn't have enough salt to preserve their catch. They use less salt than normal and sold their fish to some locals and finland salt is used to inhibit microbial growth and to stop the fish from rotting. When the fishermen returned they thought the locals would be mad at them for selling them fish. That rotted instead. They love the product and wanted more of it. The fishermen tried the fish themselves and thus stroming was born today sir. Strumming is prepared. In purchasing a can while in the can the fermentation process continues fermentation results in the release of gases which means at the can will often be bulging due to high pressure inside the can the fermentation of the fish in the can result in the single most unique quality of sir strumming the smell in two thousand and two japanese study found it to be the worst smelling food in the world. The smell is so bad that it has become legendary. it's been described as rotten eggs. A dead body a dirty diaper and raw sewage but the truth is there are so few things you can really compare it to because nothing else smells quite so bad. The smell is what's made the product famous. And if it weren't for the smell it would be about as controversial as pickled herring children in sweden have been known to open a can of sir stroming school so they could get out of class. Airlines will not allow people to carry sir strumming on flights because of the high pressure in the can in the low pressure in the cabin the higher pressure differential can result in some cans rupturing spewing the smelly liquid onto the plane and. It isn't as if you can leave a plane while it's flying or open a window most famously in one thousand nine hundred one a landlord. Germany evicted attendant because they spilled a can of sir strumming in the building stairwell german laws. Make it very hard to evict people. When the eviction came to trial the landlords defense consisted of opening up a can in the courtroom. The judge have experienced the overwhelming odor ruled in favor of the landlord. If you search for sir strumming online you'll find dozens and dozens of reaction videos of people opening up the cans and trying to eat the contents. The videos mainly consists of gigging wrenching and sometimes vomiting the problem. According to the sir strumming experts is that they're eating at wrong for starters. You never want to open a canister stroming indoors for reasons which i think of established by now. Ideally you want to open the can when submerged in water that will prevent the liquid inside from spraying all over the place when it's opened alternatively you could open it while it's enclosed in a plastic bag once the liquid has been drain. You don't eat it straight from the can the herring which is put in the can. Hasn't been gutted or deboned. You need to do that. I then the traditional way of meaning it is with a swedish flat bread called tune broad along with potatoes onions and sour cream. It's usually eaten as sort of small sandwich. I've actually had the experience of trying some sir strumming and it really doesn't taste as bad as it smells ranted given that it's the worst smelling food in the world. That's a pretty low bar but it isn't bad so long as it prepared properly if you really want the full sir strumming experience. I'd have to suggest you visit the island of von in sweden's high coast. It is a center of herring fishing and it's considered. The mecca for strumming. August is considered the best season enforcers strumming. Because it's in the middle of the summer. It's also one of the best times to visit ov- on regardless the main day for eating it is the third thursday of august also known as sir strumming day. Which is the day which by royal decree you used to be able to start selling strumming. If you're there you might be able to meet ruben. Matteson who is the self proclaimed king of sir strumming. He was the person who actually served me my first serve strumming one. Is it von back in two thousand fourteen. He was involved in opening a twenty five year old. Ken of sir strumming which was found in an abandoned cabin in norway. Having been outside for a quarter century the can was quite rusted. And due to twenty five years of fermentation it was bulging a lot. The contents of the container were mostly liquid. What solid material. That did come out. Didn't really look anything. Like fish. ruben. Madsen of course aided anyhow

David Sedaris on a Career-Spanning Collection

"David sedaris joins us now from new york to talk about his new collection. The best of me david so happy to have you back on the podcast. Oh thanks pamela. So why this book now we should say. This is a collection of of your best work. Why did you decide to do this. Are we generally. I was gonna just do an audio book. And i discussed it with maya thomas who has always been my audio book producer. Just because i get a lot of audiobooks and listened to a lot of books. If i have two choices one audio book is like four hours long and the other one is like thirty five hours long. I usually go with the thirty five hour. And i think most my books are pretty short so i thought oh water night just do whatever. I considered a best work. We'll put it together and so it'll be a longer audio book and then my publisher said. Oh why don't we make it a book ball. And i should just like that. You can caved. is your preference for thirty five hour. Long audiobooks tied to your fit bit habit. Yes it is. You know. I just looked at the count of monte cristo. Because my sister amy head read it. That's fifty four our audio walk. We're could you walk with that. I can cover a lot of ground with account of monte cristo. The last time you were on the podcast it was to talk about your collection theft by finding in which you had many encounters over the years with people on the street and what i enjoy so much in this collection the best of me are they encounters in the airplane. I'm curious now if you're if you're having like a second wave of encounters on the street because you're spending so much time walking around driven by your fit bit around new york. Oh i mean. I'm spending a lot more time on the street but i think because maybe it's because people are wearing masks. We see more disconnected from one. Another i think you know when i did travel during this time it felt so good to be back in an airport so good to be back on an airplane. I felt so at home. And i felt like i back where i you know where i needed to be and backward. I belonged and all of it. You know even the long layover and the crummy hotel. All of it i welcomed it went down for breakfast. I had to go to indiana. And i went downstairs for breakfast and i brought my computer. 'cause i was going to work while at breakfast. Thought you idiot. You can't go breakfast Tell with just your computer because there's going to be two. Tv's playing and there's gonna be music. You need your headphones to blot. All that out hired. I forgotten crazy. How much. I forgot just know the nine months that i wasn't allowed to travel. There are so many great airplane stories in this collection. So it's interesting to hear you say that you miss air travel because of your airplane stories sort of exhibit the worst of humanity and thinking. Probably the most obvious one is standing by which is just a classic. You really do still like air travel because to me it feels like you write about it. It brings out the worst in humanity. Remember when i was yelling. And i would watch like johnny carson and so of the comedians would talk about air travel and i thought gee dot they have anything else talk about. But and then as i grew older i realized. Oh that's what they spend all their time right. So that's where. I spent all my time and so that was why i had so many stories about it but i do think it brings out the course in people and also i think there's a real divide between people who travel a lot and people who don't when i went to north carolina couple months ago. I had a long layover in charlotte. And i said to hugh my boyfriend. Who's with me. Why are all these people traveling now. These people who haven't traveled in years and he said how do you know. They haven't traveled in years. I said there suitcases now like they weren't the suitcases with four wheels on them. There were the suitcases with two wheels. You know that people kind of lazily drag behind them see can trip over them right sign now of amateurs and he but because he doesn't travel that often he didn't know what i was talking about. Are there other ways in which airplane travel has changed that that will make its way into your work since corentin so many people are afraid to travel right now. I feel like bending over backwards to clean things. I mean i. It was interesting in north carolina. The governor put a mask mandate in place. Any just put it in place. And i would say maybe sixty percent of the people in the airport wore masks and the other forty war just really defiant expressions and then i traveled like a month later and then it was ninety. Nine percent of people had masks on. It

Why You Should Consider Audiobook Creation Exchange For Your Book

Why You Should Consider Audiobook Creation Exchange For Your Book

"What's happening? It's down here and I'm just tickled to death that you take a little bit of time out your day to spend a little bit of time with me this episode 78 and the first in the series on self-publishing an audiobook. We had been talking about self-publishing a book online for the past 16 weeks. So I I'm just I'm over it. There's other avenues we can look at but honestly, I just want to kind of switch over to them. Antibody book publishing if you're not there just yet. I really believe you should get there like ASAP and I'm going to give you some very good reasons here and stays episode. I know some of you might be thinking. Oh my gosh, it's overwhelming. There's so much stuff. I've gotta learn. I don't know. It's too expensive audio books are more important than ever. People are now consuming downloadable audio content through the ways of say podcasts and audiobooks. So you've got to get off the game now become an early adopter before this train takes off. I'm telling you that back prior to 2015. There was something that was called the Kindle Gold Rush to wear off everyone within their mother was publishing things on Kindle Direct publishing and making hand and money hand-over-fist easy for me to say Right. Now that's happening in audiobook publishing and if you are not getting in now, I really think you got to do it as soon as humanly possible and there's many options you can take advantage of one of the best places to start is going to be audiobook creation exchange now for brevity's sake I'm just going to call it a CX. So just remember that you need to remember audiable creation exchange is owned by Amazon. All right, originally started back in May of 2011 was actually put together by audible. So that's pretty interesting. In fact, they distribute audiobooks only two three platforms Audible and Amazon, of course and iTunes, which is kind of a peculiar relationship off considering that Amazon and apple are essentially competitors. In fact when you want to price match a book you want to drop it down to free publish it through apple and dead. Do It free there and then you'll have Amazon go ahead and price match fun fun fact, but here's the funny thing about iTunes you can tell that the competitors because you only get 25% royalty before a CX takes their cut. So yeah, that's right. You get twenty-five cents out of every dollar When you send it on over to Apple iTunes for your audiobook, so just just a heads up. There are other options. In other ways that you can make far more money as far as royalties go when you go into iTunes, I'm going to talk about that in future episodes for now. Let's keep on a CX so they actually serve as a Marketplace between a narrator's and rights holders. Now, that's the people that own the rights to a particular work most of the times if you're a person who's listening to this podcast, you're probably an author so you are actually a rights-holder. There are few ways that you can do narrator deals. Okay, you can do a finished price per hour right finished price per hour actually works like this. You have an audiobook let's say it's ninety five hundred words and maybe when it's read out loud, it's an hour's worth of listening content. That would be a finished our so you would essentially be paying a narrator per finished our for something like this. So let's say for instance I get a hold of my buddy Anthony Flashman and Anthony charges. Say two hundred two hundred fifty dollars per finished our I'm just saying this is a rough guesstimate. I'm not sure if that's what Anthony still charging but that means if I have for instance a month to our book that's going to run me $500 for him to do that book. Now some of you are kind of cringing you have to remember on the other side of things as a narrator. They're not just simply sitting down pressing record and calling it a day. They've got to go through your manuscript. They actually have to highlight certain areas. They have to prepare for it. They have to look up certain words and the pronunciation of those words and if you're dead, Fiction work. They're going to probably have to study the characters and figure out specific dialects or how they're going to deliver it, you know voice acting in general takes a lot of preparation

AM WE HAVE TO BE HERE I am thrilled to have you here We are going to be spending time. really talking about Being open to change and and how you we have to be able to. shift and change and whatnot order to be successful and You know with everything we're going through and and all of the upheaval and. crisis and you know you name it that's been going on over the past. I don't know seven months. I would just I love your insights on how businesses survive. The business cycle during a crisis like the one we're experiencing. So. It's it's it's pendant of the business. So the reality you've had some businesses that have had minimal impact other than the having to transport for move from working in house on Office to tell were you've had some that were only other some that actually have flourished because they worry a needed commodity or service, and then you have others that unfortunately have suffered significantly because of the crisis. So it really depends on the business but. In any case, your business has to be established and set on a foundation that is agile and flexible enough to be able to shift or pitted depending on what the market brain. So of course, we all know about slot analysis. So strength weaknesses, opportunities and threats, and one of the threats that if you're really doing a true swot analysis. Is located at potential external factors that could negatively impact your your company and a lot of them. We don't think about right whoever gets. Years would've thought about Kobe coming in and then having the negative impact of his hand and for the duration of at his dad. worked. Challenges that we're faced with is and I can't say this to your listeners. This too shall pass the question is win. Because we face so many other challenges, but the differences and this particular challenges the other challenges we've had. Twenty two thousand when we had the nine eleven on two thousand and we have the economic meltdown and crisis. The thing was it happened you know we got through the week we got stopped or it happened, and then we were able to work on rebuilding in coming up with a plan to get to the recovery. This is is is that it's happened and here we are a month later it's still happening so. We'll get through. It is just a matter of time. So what we have to do is we have to recognize that for every door and window that closes there's seventeen others that open right. So the needs of our community, the needs of our clients may change based on what's happened. So in some instances, businesses that had a lot of very well thriving company where customers wanted. X., after this, they may not need X. or maybe they don't need X. Right now because the Kobe still going on but then you have to ask you a question, what do they need and if it's not particular customers, maybe it's another set of customers that I never thought about. So what am I have to Kinda scan the environment I have to keep my eyes and ears. To the needs and then figure out from our company's perspective. What can we? What can we feel? What need can we fulfill than is out there now that may not have been there before.

How To Self Publish Your Book Online With XinXii Publishing

"What's happening? I am just absolutely tickled to death that you take a little bit of time out today to spend a little bit of time with me to talk about one of my favorite things in self-publishing books. And you know how long we've been talking about it. They're going on sixteen weeks straight of discussing all the different Avenues it rest assured. We're not quite done but this is probably going to be one of the last month or this type of publishing they're going to talk about we're going to switch over into aggregate publishing and audiobook publishing more importantly in the coming weeks. So let's focus on this long last option. Now, this is not to say that I've exhausted every Avenue. I've just hit all the major Avenues some of the areas that people have asked me about the thing with self-publishing a book on off online is it can be overwhelming it can seem like oh my gosh, there's Amazon. There's Apple there's Barnes & Noble. There's Kobo. There's racket since rackets in scope. Oh, I said it twice just coughing. Twice is nice. There's smashwords. There's draft the Jewelers published. Oh my gosh. Well, I thought what better way to break it all down then just do an entire podcast series about this off. So in any event, we're going to be discussing an aggregate publisher an aggregate publisher works like this you upload your content to their platform and they feed it out to numerous Avenues on your behalf. Typically, typically an aggregate publisher takes a percentage of the net profits that come in from the different areas. Okay. Now too bad, there's other ones like published drive that charge a fee a subscription fee to do it since she's not so much like that, but I'm going to put a little bit of an asterisk next to this. So we're going to be talking about Shinji full disclosure song. I'm just curating information here. I've never used them. In fact today. I actually started breaking ground and started uploading an audiobook cuz I'm really curious. They have some Avenues. I don't see a page or through other areas like a CX or find a way voices or published drives. So I said, let's go and give this a shot. There's a little bit of an ambiguity about it though, and I'm going to discuss it here. Get too far ahead of myself. So Shen she's the name of the company. It's spelled x i n x i i and look it up. Yes. It is pronounced Shen. She actually found a video of someone saying it that actually is from the companies and she so european-based company and I always try to cross check to see if they're legit. If any aggregate Publishers good the alliance of Indian authors is one of the best organizations to cross-check any kind of services for self-publishers. You have something that's called the Watchdog service and on that Watch Dog service, they fully vet competition and they don't mince words if there's something a little bit of skew a little bit off. They're not going to recommend it. They'll probably put a caution rating or even avoid it altogether. With Shadow, it gets a recommended rating. Now that is like the top award, you know, there is excellent partner. But since she's not a partner, they're just recommending. So it's without that partner relationship that they have the recommendation. So that speaks volumes ahead of time. Keep in mind Ally the alliance of independent. Authors is run by any authors for any others. Isn't that somebody getting their you know Palms greased saying well, you know, if you give us good words, well, we'll go ahead and pay a little extra. Something doesn't work that way. So in any event, they distribute ebooks and audiobooks but no print books. And so if you're looking for another print-on-demand Avenue Shane, she's not it off. I try to do some digging to see if that was something I was coming any time soon, but I didn't find anything about it. Let's learn. With the books. They accept files. Oh my gosh, like I think thirty different file types. I will mention these ones real briefly here doc ePub PDF. Text PowerPoint. What? Yeah, they accept PowerPoint Excel. Yeah, they accept Excel spreadsheets what PostScript and so many more years. There's no minimum requirement or maximum threshold. Now, I'm going to have a little bit of an asterisk here because I saw they said there's no minimum requirement off. No, ma'am ran out of pages. Technically there is there is and and looks like it too far ahead ourselves here distribution goes out to Amazon the example Bookstore Barnes & Noble Google Kobo Scribd. They have 27 Avenues in total Plus. the shaanxi author page now Shinji author page is essentially a way that you can distribute through the senshi platform and because it's an aggregate publisher. You'll be going to the various Avenues. Let's say you're Distributing ebook over to Amazon. Everybody knows that if you have your book price between 299 and 99 at 70% through Amazon KDP. Well,

Partner Amazon Publisher Shinji Shaanxi Author Jewelers Apple KDP Shane Google Bookstore Barnes
