My Wiki Has Go-Faster Stripes!
“Inspiring” is a pretty good word to use about tonight’s show. Andi Buchanan had a great idea for The Daring Book For Girls … two million copies later (to say nothing of a video game, a Burger King kids meal and a film deal!) she’s here to tell us – and inspire us with – her story. Erik Deckers has been writing for 24 years, 17 years as a humor columnist, eight as a playwright, and now three as a book author. The author of Branding Yourself: How to Use Social Media to Invent or Reinvent Yourself as well as the forthcoming No Bullshit Social Media!, Erik knows a thing or two about how authors should use social media… it’s inspiring, too! Equally inspirational is Philip Jones, managing editor of The Bookseller and co-founder of FutureBook.net… in certain cultures, Philip would be a veritable god – but tonight (more prosaically with us) he’s telling us about Waterstones’ plans for an e-reader.
All this together with Dave Bartram, Donna Ballman and Ali in the chatroom! Were you there? Well, if you weren’t – at least you can listen to the recording, here. But…don’t miss out next week!

We couldn’t do it without you, and that’s the truth. You really do keep us on the air.
If you value truly independent broadcasting – not beholden to special interest groups, the curse of political correctness or some nefarious media baron – then please support us now.
Here are our goals…
Goal #1: We Go Weekly!
We’d love to be with you more often than once a month. But every show needs a lot of time to prepare… Our first goal is to produce a top-quality show every week – please help us get there!
Goal #2: We Go Video!
Wouldn’t it be nice to see our guests? Video will add a new dimension to what we do (and yes, we’ll always have top-quality audio available, too).
Goal #3: We Go On The Road!
Help LAD get off our tushies and produce some of the best location shows you’ve ever heard. We can do it – with your help!
You can cancel at any time (but we hope you won’t!). And thank you – your kind patronage truly makes all the difference.
