  • "Commentary with a Libertarian Persp..."

    Overall

    No, this isn't news -- it's commentary. Anyone who expects this "audio magazine" to provide balanced reporting is missing the point; the objective here is to look at current events from a libertarian (rational individualist, free-market, limited government) perspective. I've listened to this program in the past, and it does provide an welcome alternative view to what you'll find in the pages of the New York Times or on NPR's airways.

Previous recordings have included Milton Friedman, Hernando de Soto, Anne Applebaum, Alan Greenspan, P. J. O'Rourke, and Steve Forbes.

    "Excellent - but no section navigation"

    Overall

    Since Audible discontinued NPR's wonderful program "All Things Considered," I have been searching for a replacement. I find the combination of international news and more extensive features to be an interesting mix. However, I find the inability to navigate sections (thereby skipping a feature of less interest) to be a frustrating drawback.

    "Needs section navigation!"

    Overall

    This is an excellent program, with varied news stories and features. However, the inability to navigate sections (thereby skipping over stories of less interest) is a serious drawback for me, and I will not renew my subscription.

  • "Political Food for Policy Junkies"

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    The Cato Institute hosts some of the smartest, most thoughtful people on government, politics, and public policy, and now you can hear them without having to trek to DC to attend Cato's programs in person. Even better, Cato selects and edits their very best speechs and debates so listeners can hear the most cutting-edge thinkers on the most pressing issues of our day without wasting time. It's always great on Cato Audio. Abandoning the stale left-right, us-them approach that dominates the media and much of political discourse, Cato Audio provides fresh thinking from the perspective of what's good for humananity without all the empty rhetoric that Washington usually provides.

    Sookie doesn't have that many relations, so she hated to lose one - but of all the people to go, she didn't expect it to be her cousin Hadley, a consort of New Orleans' vampire queen - after all, Hadley was technically already dead. But she is gone, beyond recall, and she's left Sookie an inheritance - one that comes with a bit of a risk - not least because someone doesn't want Sookie digging too deep into Hadley's past - or her possessions.

    Sookie's beginning to get used to being surrounded by all varieties of supernatural beings - but even she has her limits. She'd really like to take a while to get over being betrayed by Bill, her long-time vampire lover, and get used to her new relationship with the sexy shapeshifter Quinn - but instead, she finds herself attending the long-planned vampire summit, the destination of choice for every undead power player around, as a sort-of human 'Geiger counter' for Sophie-Anne Leclerq, vampire queen of Louisiana.
