If you could sum up April 17, 2017 in three words, what would they be?
Love the Times, in spite of its tendency to be self righteous and insular at times.
The audio reader...not so much. Every single issue he reads has one or more cringeworthy mispronunciations.
In this one he pronounced Banksy as "Banski".
Wish you had a reader who could actually read.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
At least one serious pronunciation error in every issue.

I look forward to Mark Moran's bright, friendly, and earnest voice every morning when I download the New York Times Audio Digest.
But the way he plunges with abandon into his periodic mispronunciations are becoming legend. This one made me literally laugh out loud -- Banksy pronounced Banski, loooool! Every time I think of it, I get another chuckle.
Sometimes I wonder if he's pulling our collective leg... just like "Banski."
Just to be clear... I love Mark Moran!
