I’ve been working with the Edinburgh International Book Festival for 10 years now on their Book Festival podcasts, creating a series of hour long recordings of events for the iTunes store and use on their website. Each year we take about 30 events and I edit them for sound level, excessive silence (never good when listening through headphones) and so on.

You can subscribe to this years podcast here:?https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/2017-edinburgh-international-book-festival/id1278868509?mt=2

Authors published so far include Sebastian Barry, Ian Rankin and Charley Boorman.
