  • "Amazing"

    Overall

    Each of the New Yorker Audible issues so far has been an incredible treasure. Many of us have subscribed to the New Yorker over the years, only to leave piles of them unread. This is a way to enjoy each week's New Yorker in a more consistent way. This is the way New Yorkers were meant to be enjoyed. Subscribe to the New Yorker for the cartoons, and for some of the articles that haven't been recorded, but don't miss the New Yorkers in this medium, superlatively read, quirky, thought-provoking. This is a don't miss experience.

J. Shammas's greatest hits:
  • The Morning Read from The Wall Street Journal, 1-Month Subscription

    "WSJ stories, but not news"

    Overall

    I was wholly disappointed. The tape could have been recorded a week (or months) earlier given its lack of timely news. The rougly 1-hour audio contains about 8-10 articles (a story or two from each section and an opinion column), each about 6-7 minutes long. Except for the lead story in the Business News and the World News columns, no current events were covered. Comments about the previous day's stock market were under 1 minute. While it might be interesting, DON'T SUBSCRIBE IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE BUSINESS WORLD OR ON WALL STREET.

  • "Good coverage of business and news"

    18 of 18 helpful votes

    I've been been subscribing to Audible's WSJ for over a year now, and have found this to be a great resource to maximize one's time. I found that I was often not able to get through the print edition for lack of time, but with audible's edition of WSJ, I can listen in the car or exercising. Delivery has almost always been there in the morning so good for morning commutes. Friday's edition also includes the extra weekend edition, which includes movie reviews and wine commentary, which are enjoyable features to hear.
