Special thanks to Sasha, Stacy and Stef for sharing the Audible experience with me and being the best of company during my recovery.
Though it's only about ten minutes this is a nice little excerpt from Risk. Mara Wilson discusses the ups and downs of her relationship with her sister who is not only seven years younger than her but is a practicing Catholic while Mara is an atheist. It was both touching and entertaining.
This is one of the two 'Risk' podcasts featuring Elna Baker who has the delivery and timing of a seasoned comic. (She currently has several You Tube videos that are quite good if you'd like to see more of her work.) In this audio she talks about an encounter with an older male celebrity at a time when she was working at a sushi restaurant in New York. There are some portions of this audio that are still funny the 10th time around; given the cost (.66 cents) it's a can't miss deal.
The title itself was what initially caught my eye and the story lives up to the promise of humor that was implicit there. There is also a touching poignancy to the author's rendition; certainly worth the small price.
