A conversation with Lucas Cantor, host of the Book Society podcast


In today’s extended episode, I’m sitting down with Lucas Cantor, a podcaster, composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and speaker. He has worked in NBC's music department for eight Olympic Games for which he won two Emmys in 2008 and 2012. He co-produced Lorde's cover of Everybody Wants To Rule The World, found on the Hunger Games, Catching Fire Soundtrack. Lucas is also an avid reader. He hosts his own show, the Book Society podcast, which features weekly conversations with fascinating guests from diverse backgrounds.

Lucas and I are both passionate about great storytelling and history. Our conversation today includes friendly disagreements about Malcolm Gladwell’s Bomber Mafia, frequent references to Middlemarch by George Eliot, and the dynamics and design of audiobooks and podcasting. Lucas also mentions a few words about his June 11th podcast conversation with Water Rights lawyer and journalist, Zach Smith
