Podiobooks are free audiobooks that are delivered to your podcast player in installments. Instead of getting a full ten hours of audio in one go, the story is sent to you in manageable chunks, on the schedule you set.
The raw audio for this podiobook came from my podcast, but the Podiobooks people have taken my readings and cleaned them up, cut out the intros, and equalized the levels across all the installments. It sounds dynamite.
The timing on this couldn't be better -- this is just in time for International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day, when Internet creators post free material for sharing and enjoying.
What's more, this book also has the distinction of having been banned by the Mayor of Boston from Boston's free WiFi network (Boing Boing is also banned!) I'm especially proud of this, since part of the book is set in Boston. I'm lucky to have been censored by the best.
(Thanks, Evo and David!)
