The essay genre is well suited for audio format, where thoughts can dance without wandering too far, and there's no strong need to write down anything for reference later, apart from well turned phrases we might want to look back on for inspiration.
David Foster Wallace was a master of the essay form.
I don't know whom I would have chosen over Paul Garcia, but it was clear from the reading the way things ought to have been read, but weren't. I recall a chiasmus or two read in a way that seemed oblivious to the relation of the two sentences, and it hurt to hear.
I could listen to each entry in one go, but it's refreshing enough and light enough, yet coherent enough to only hear as much as fits in a walk, jog or commute, to be picked up later. Again, kudos to the author.
