Your welcome Jean. It really is a great site. I just noticed they have added an MP3 page of the most popular interviews. I am hoping they will convert all of their content from Real player into MP3 sooner or later.
If anyone knows of another site similar to this one, please post the URL. Author interviews, poetry, et cetera.

Hi Erin, I too listen to Wired for Books. Two other good sites are the Paris Review audio although the clips are not as long as the Wired for Books clips, and KCRW's Bookworm archive.

Margaret,

Thanks for the great links. I wonder if the Smithsonian has an online public audio archive for this type of content? I found the Smithsonian Global Sound musical archive (which is amazing), but I would love to find more one on one interviewee type of material. Thanks.

good audio for mapmaking: WBUR was playing the Kitchen Sisters' piece on resisting Glen Canyon dam ("Cry me a river") tonight, which drew me into the Heart of the Land website, where more good mapmaking audio awaited....
