Hugh McGuire Talks Books on Talking Through My Hat

Pressbooks founder Hugh McGuire was recently featured on Talking Through My Hat, a podcast by Futureproofs creator John Pettigrew that covers everything in the spectrum of book and business.

You can listen to episode 49: Passion and idealism (Hugh McGuire interview) here.

In the interview, Hugh describes how Pressbooks came to be what it is today, including the creation of Librivox and how its success paved the way for future projects that include the present day Pressbooks, Rebus Ink, and the Rebus Community.

At Pressbooks, our focus has always been on how to create space for new models of publishing enabled by the web, and we thank you all for allowing us to make that philosophy a reality.
