King of Ragtime: Scott Joplin and His Era - Edward A. Berlin

My third podcast for the New Books Network is up! It's an hour-long interview with the ragtime historian Ed Berlin about the newly-revised edition of his biography of Scott Joplin, King of Ragtime (which I reviewed here). I think that overall it turned out pretty well -- perhaps I'm getting the hang of this podcasting business!
