Engaging and well-paced

I really enjoy New Books in Political Science, the hosts make sure that their discussions are free of jargon, and explain the ideas in these cutting-edge works in a clear and accessible manner. It's solidly in my podcast rotation alongside the best of NPR and Pacifica radio.

Useful and Interesting

This is a great way to stay up on new books in the field! I also love using these podcasts with students, to expose them to new ideas when there isn’t room for an entire book on the syllabus.

Fascinating but flawed

The New Books podcasts do me a huge service by keeping me up to date on my field (American elections and public opinion) while introducing me to work is never have thought to read on my own. For example, I really enjoyed the recent episode on Buddhist politics in Myanmar.However, they also occasionally remind me how much academics struggle to explain their work. Obviously these podcasts aren't aimed at a lay audience, but the interviewees often have trouble conveying why even another academic outside their subfield might care about their subject. And the interviewers sometimes seem indifferent when not talking about their own are; sometimes it feels like they're just skimming the chapter titles to guide their questions.On the whole, though, very edifying podcasts and I'm extremely grateful to the people who volunteer their time to make them happen.

Please buy a new microphone

I will listen to all of your podcasts as the content is superb, but please spend $40 on a microphone made this century!

New Books in Political Science

The concept is promising and the subject interesting, but the podcasts end up disappointing. Poor sound quality. Interviews are chatty.
