Books on the Radio: Ready to Set Sail on the Torrents

Books on the Radio podcasts will soon be available on Pirate Bay, Isohunt & H33T.

We’re hoisting the sails and aiming for open seas.

Very soon all publicly broadcast episodes of Books on the Radio will be able to be found via torrent tracking sites such as Pirate Bay, Vancouver’s own Isohunt and H33T.

This is an experiment with possibility and an opportunity for me to better understand how these sites work and what communities live there.  I am interested to learn more about how people communicate with one another in these places.

Also, obviously I am interested in the supreme efficiency of the digital transfer of files around the world and the possibility of finding kindred souls who love books and love listening to people discuss them.

There’s a lot of opportunity here, a lot of potential to build bridges and find new markets.

I’ll send back news of strange foreign ports of call, abandoned treasure and monsters under the sea.

In the meantime, I’ll be in the crow’s nest scanning the horizon for signs of plunderable booty.

Sean Cranbury is the Executive Editor of Books on the Radio. He's also Founder and Creative Director of the Real Vancouver Writers' Series. Sean is General Manager at the legendary Storm Crow Tavern and consults with literary arts organizations on digital communications strategies.
