Casting Pods, Casting Webs
Podcasts scare me. I don't know how they work and I only have the slightest of inklings of what exactly they are. I'm a disgrace to my generation (being 28 and all). Webcasts, on the other hand, are groovy. And Kids Lit had a link to an especially interesting series of webcasts just this week. It seems that the Library of Congress has started collecting webcasts of authors. All you need to know? Children's authors are part of the mix. According to Kids Lit they've already hooked up to Mary Pope Osborne, Neil Gaiman, R. L. Stine, Meg Cabot, Sharon Creech, Patricia Reilly Giff, Walter Dean Myers, Pat Mora, Jack Gantos, and Jerry Pinkney. Well worth a gander.
