It currently has close to 50 episodes with prominent authors and book industry insiders. The host, Roxanne Coady, is a highly regarded go-to person for advice on books and owner of award-winning independent bookseller R.J. Julia in Madison, CT.

Book Riot, with close to 800,000 followers, is a popular blog and website covering book-related news, reviews, commentary and information. It produces several podcasts of its own about books.
Separately, Just The Right Book Podcast is also being featured among the best book podcasts on Player FM, a podcast player that helps listeners find great shows.

On Just The Right Book Podcast, guests have included the most prolific, best-selling authors of our time such as: James Patterson, Ann Patchett, John Grisham, Scott Turow, Dean Koontz, Michael Connelly, Nicole Krauss, and Maria Semple, to name a few. Celebrities-turned-authors who have told their stories to Roxanne include: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Luvvie Ajayi, chef Jacques Pepin, actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley, perfume icon Jo Malone and leading advice columnist Amy Dickinson (“Ask Amy”). Add to the list some of the most influential book publishers from Hachette, Random House, Kirkus Reviews and the legendary Strand Bookstore.
“I’m amazed at how Roxanne is able to probe authors to take you inside their books and the thinking behind them,” said Show Producer Christina Torres. “She asks the kinds of questions book lovers would ask and, with her guests, offers so many ideas for your next read. My only complaint is that my TBR list is now too long.”
The show is available on iTunes and the podcast website at www.bookpodcast.com.
