Techdirt Podcast Episode 3: Amanda Palmer And The Art Of Asking
from the afp dept
After a short break (and a teaser) last week, it’s now time for Episode 3 of the Techdirt Podcast. If you still haven’t subscribed, you should follow us on Soundcloud, subscribe via iTunes, or simply plug the RSS feed into your favorite podcatcher app (we have a few recommendations). Of course, you can also keep up with all the latest episodes right here on Techdirt.
This week we’ve got a special guest, and someone who should be familiar to regular Techdirt readers: Amanda Palmer, an artist who has been taking an innovative (and sometimes controversial) approach to succeeding in the music business for a long time. The episode kicks off with Amanda reading an excerpt from her new book, The Art Of Asking, or How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Let People Help, then moves on into a discussion about the book, her experiences in the music and publishing industries, the anger that has arisen around some of her creative business model experiments, and much more. For the music this week, we’ve got a clip of Amanda’s own The Killing Type from her album Theatre Is Evil. A big thanks to Amanda Palmer for visiting the podcast, and we hope you enjoy the episode!
