I enjoy keeping track of developments at Amazon.com. My primary source of information is The Kindle Chronicles podcast.
Len Edgerly is the creator and host of the podcast. Len is a bright fellow with a background in journalism. He graduated from Harvard College in 1972 and the Harvard Business School in 1977.
Before retiring he was a business journalist at The Providence (R.I.) Journal-Bulletin, an editor of an energy magazine in Casper, Wyoming, and an executive at a natural gas company based in Denver.
Len has been podcasting since 2006, when he launched the Audio Pod Chronicles and Video Pod Chronicles. He began the weekly Kindle Chronicles podcast in 2008. New podcasts generally appear each Friday and last about 40 minutes. Although Len does everything himself he is diligent in publishing a new episode each week even under difficult circumstances.
Each podcast consists of four parts:
- Amazon related news
- Kindle Tech Tips
- An interview
- Book recommendations
Len attracts interesting guests. In 2016, he interviewed Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos. Len loves to read and I have come to value the book recommendations he includes in his podcast. I also have learned a lot about the fast changing publishing business by listening to The Kindle Chronicles.
But what I enjoy most is Len’s intellect and curiosity. I look forward to each new episode.
