On Nonfiction

“A discussion of nonfiction specifically, and reading generally.” The Nordonia Hills podcast tends to focus on newer titles, but I have discussed older one as well. All areas of the collection are fair game: I have done geography, history, science, economics, art, food, religion, social science, biography, literature, philosophy, travel, holidays, entertainment, and more.

Ray's Listening Room

Determined to bring you sounds you might not have heard before (and sometimes sounds you forgot about), the Ellet Branch Library Podcast is an 8-10 minute podcast that features musical excerpts from non-mainstream artists such as alternative rockers Sleater-Kinney, indie folk trio the Innocence Mission, ambient post-rock instrumental duo Hammock, and Christian grunge-alternative rock icon Steve Taylor. A recent episode even featured excerpts from a two-disc best-of from Lost And Found Sound, a wonderful (but now-defunct) program from NPR.

Think of Ray’s Listening Room as a really cool pirate radio station. But legal.
