  1. Very interesting interview! Book distribution is one of the fuzzier elements of the bookselling business for me. It’s also gratifying to see a distributor focusing on Canadian writers – the on-line catalog has a quite impressively large quantity of titles for a company that’s only been around for a few years.

  2. I thought you would like to know that your podcast has not been updating on iTunes. The last podcast available is 102.

  3. Thank you for letting me know Christopher. The one thing I haven’t checked in the past while. I believe it should be fixed now.


  4. Wow, I’ve never heard the word Tuque before. I call it a stocking cap or beanie. Learn something new every day! Your host was very knowledgeable and though I live in the states it was really interesting to hear about how some things work for my neighbors to the north. Great episode Mike.

  5. Thanks Dan. I’m glad you got something out of it. I think (from my limited dealings) that distribution has similarities wherever you might be. I hoped that would shine through in this episode.
