I’ve been listening to a lot of podcast interviews with one of the most prolific writers around, Seth Godin. It occurred to me, there’s enough content out there for an audiobook, so I hacked one together. Here it is…
He’s the author of over 18 bestselling books, as well as a daily blog. But I’ve found it useful to consume his content on the go. I’ve listened to some of his audiobooks (Most recently, Meatball Sundae).
Then I discovered that for a long time, and especially over the past year or so after the release of What To Do When It’s Your Turn (And It’s Always Your Turn), he’s appeared as a guest on a number of podcasts.
I’ve listened to as many of them as I can find, having searched them out via iTunes, Podcast Addict and Google. They are not always easy to find. Searching “Seth Godin” turns up a lot of false results, since many of the business podcast out there put his name in their metadata or describe their podcast as “In the tradition of leaders like Seth…”.
After listening to this content for several weeks now, it occurrred to me that looking at the series of interviews as a body of work constitues a book. So I decided to compile an audiobook based on some of these appearances.
Listen to all of these and you’ll notice a great deal of repetition. But as Seth says in his interview with Tim Ferris, when it’s audio, that’s ok, because the repetition helps the ideas sink in.
I’ve included all the chapters below, but the more practical way to listen to this audiobook is to download the iTunes playlist and sync the chapters to your device. Click on the image below to download the .xml file of the Playlist. Then open iTunes and choose File > Import Playlist, then select the XML file.
I hope you benefit from this playlist. Give me your feedback and ideas. I’d like to compile similar lists with other great thinkers and authors. What audiobook hack would you listen to next?
