Playboy Releases 50 of Its Best Interviews Over 50 Days on Amazon’s Kindle Store

Among other things, Playboy is known for its interviews.

Year after year, month after month, they manage to land the biggest power players-people like Steve Jobs, Tina Fey, Johnny Depp, Fidel Castro, Gore Vidal, Jon Stewart, Bill Gates, and Jay-Z.

Beginning on September 4th, Playboy started releasing 50 of their best interviews from the last 50 years in an exclusive deal with Amazon's Kindle Store. They're releasing one interview per day, and the breadth and quality of these interviews certainly got my attention.

To see the interviews that are already available, look here. These interviews represent a unique crossroads between pop culture and history, and at 99 cents each they are definitely worth the price.

Starting in December, a selection of Playboy interviews will be available as special bundled compilations. They will include:

  • The Directors – Robert Altman, Martin Scorsese, James Cameron & more
  • Wild Men, Muckrakers and Inconoclasts – Keith Richards, Charlie Sheen, Malcolm X & more
  • Coupling – John Lennon & Yoko Ono, Cheech & Chong & more
  • Music Men – David Bowie, Frank Sinatra, Jay-Z & more
  • Sports Gods – Barry Bonds, Derek Jeter, Bruce Jenner & more
  • Late Night Talkers – Johnny Carson, Jon Stewart, David Letterman & more
  • Killers, Assassins and Revolutionaries – Fidel Castro, Yasser Arafat, James Earl Ray & more
  • Screen Gods – Marlon Brando, Denzel Washington, Johnny Depp & more
  • Men of Letters – Truman Capote, Gore Vidal, Tennessee Williams & more
  • Moguls – Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, Jeff Bezos & more
  • Funny People – Joan Rivers, George Carlin, Chris Rock & more

Although I'm not seeing anything listed so far, would be great to see any number of the great James Bond-related Playboy interviews appear as part of this. Clearly some of the best. And timely, this being the 60th anniversary of the original Ian Fleming books and 50th anniversary of the Eon Productions movies.
