iHeartMedia and iHeartRadio now going from podcasts to books

iHeartMedia, the radio station company that’s pushed into podcasts, is now getting into the books business. The company announced yesterday that its Stuff You Should Know podcast series has signed a four-book deal with Flatiron Books. The first book, Stuff You Should Know: An Incomplete Compendium of Mostly Interesting Things, will be released this fall and will “answer all the questions readers didn’t know they wanted to ask.” Start thinking of those questions!

This isn’t the first podcast series to get a book deal — Barnes & Noble even made a whole list of books based on or inspired by podcasts — but the news comes at a time when podcasting hype is palpable. Multiple companies, like iHeart and Spotify, are making content deals with big names and betting their businesses on the success of those shows
