What do you get when you combine one of the most amazing book stores in the country, today’s most interesting authors, and a mobile recording studio? One of the best literary podcasts on earth.
Recorded live at the Tattered Cover book store in Denver, Authors on Tour was launched in 2005, and we were excited and honored to be drafted into the project by our partner BurstMarketing in early 2007. Since that time, DCC has produced nearly 400 podcast episodes, including authors reading from their books before a live audience and intimate author interviews. In 2009 we redesigned the AOT WordPress website, and in 2010 built an iPhone app for the podcast series.
Authors on Tour has featured David Sedaris, Garrison Keillor, John Hodgman, and then-Senator Barack Obama, and is one of the most popular literary podcasts on iTunes, with well over 1,000,000 all-time downloads.
David Sedaris Reads Crybaby from “When You Are Engulfed in Flames”
While on book tour for When You Are Engulfed in Flames, David Sedaris read to a standing room-only crowd at the Tattered Cover book store in Lower Downtown Denver.
This story from the book, Crybaby, recounts Sedaris’s experience with a publicly mourning seatmate on a flight from New York City to Paris. Listen in as Sedaris electrifies the Tattered Cover crowd.
