Want more of The New Yorker?
(P) and ©2015 The New Yorker
For about the last 6 months, New Yorker has changed their format; instead of reading the contents of each edition, so the listener can know what's included, the reading launches into the first story, etc, with "From the New Yorker, dated...." Most unsatisfactory. **
** See above. I haven't commented on this change before because I just discovered that it's possible to do so and don't wish to have to repeat this for each week since the change. Please bring back the reading of the list of articles included in this week's edition.
