Want to be interviewed?

The Book of Life Podcast covers Jewish books, albums, films, websites, or other cultural artifacts that could be found in a Judaic library like our sponsor emeritus, the Feldman Children's Library at Congregation B'nai Israel of Boca Raton, Florida. If you have created such a work, then you are welcome to submit it to The Book of Life to be considered for an interview.

Guidelines:
  • Material for adults and children are both welcome. 
  • Jewish content is required; Jewish authorship is not.  
  • We rarely cover Torah-related ("Old Testament") stories written from a non-Jewish perspective.
  • We rarely cover war-related or Holocaust-related materials, due to "Holocaust fatigue" on the part of host Heidi Rabinowitz. 
  • We rarely cover memoirs.
  • We rarely cover scholarly works. 
To be considered for an interview, email bookoflifepodcast@gmail.com with a description of your work. If we are interested, we will ask you to mail a hard copy (print book, CD, DVD, etc.). Please be patient while waiting for your submission to be reviewed: it may take several months. Heidi's "to be read" pile is very large!

If selected, you will be contacted to schedule an interview. Interviews are performed by Skype, by phone, or in person when convenient. We audio record the interviews and edit them before publishing. Because there are usually many recordings already in the queue, it may take several months before your interview is published.

Interviewees who live in Canada or will be visiting the Toronto area may be interviewed by Anne Dublin, The Book of Life's Canadian Correspondent.

Guests should plan to help promote their appearances on The Book of Life. Please see Resources for Guests for ways to do so.

We look forward to your submissions!

***UPDATE: At this time (Summer 2017) The Book of Life is not accepting unsolicited submissions due to a large backlog of material in the queue. Please check back in Fall 2017 to see if submissions are welcome again at that time.***
