Host and Producer of CraftLit and Just the Books (all the lit, none of the craft) / Crafting-a-Life, Inc.
CraftLit has been in production continuously since 2006 and shows no signs of stopping. During each weekly episode, Heather Ordover, provides interesting and sometimes amusing commentary on the next chapters of a story, then plays the book's audio as a way to present classic literature for a general audience. Think: audiobook with benefits.
The show started specifically as a way to get classic literature to people who were busy working with their hands. While "crafters" are often the audience, it is far from being a requirement and listeners have written in to describe how CraftLit has helped them with housework, gardening, caring for an infant, running labs, just about anything. The podcast is free and more than 15 books are available in the online library as well as at iTunes.
As of summer 2011, back episodes are being edited to leave the book talk but remove the crafty bits. The result is Just the Books podcast--all the lit, none of the craft.
