Bound''s Ultimate Publishing Toolkit of ''The Book People'' podcast and ''Demystifying Indian Publishing: Bound''s Industry Insights and Predictions 2021'' report attempts to act as a ready reckoner for readers, writers, editors and publishers.

''The Book People'' is a 13-episode podcast exploring Indian publishing through the eyes of the people who work in it. Each episode will include series-host Aishwarya Javalgekar in conversation with an industry expert about their role, experience and opinions about the industry and its future.

Among the guests are Ishani Butalia (Zubaan Books), Sayantan Ghosh (Simon & Schuster India) and Harshad Marathe (designer). Each episode in the series, which started on March 18, will be released every Thursday.

The research was led and authored by Megha Jha, with Tara Khandelwal and Javalgekar as co-authors.
