This morning, I interviewed Hugh McGuire. Hugh has a long history at the crossroads of book culture and technology. He founded Librivox, a volunteer-based service, which takes public domain books and turns them into audiobooks. He's also co-founder of Book Oven, a new start-up that aims to be a collaborative space for making books. He's also one of the people behind BookCamp, an unconference held in Toronto on June 6th. Hugh came into CBC's Montreal studios to talk about the future of publishing, and the buzz at BookCamp.

A shorter version of this interview will air on the June 10th and 13th episode of Spark, but you can download the MP3.
