I'm the founder and editor of the New Books Network (NBN) (http://newbooksnetwork.com), a consortium of Anglophone author-interview podcasts in 90 academic fields. We publish 10 new interviews a week, have published over 1,200 interviews to date, and serve over 6,000 interviews every day.
I would like to explore the possibility of creating a German-language New Books Network: German-speaking hosts, German-speaking guests, German-language books in multiple academic fields. The Anglophone NBN model could, I think, be easily adapted to serve the deutsche Sprachraum.
Right now I'm seeking people to help us create a German-language NBN. If you are interested in participating, I urge you to contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
