The New Yorker's blend of reporting, commentary, criticism, fiction, and cartoons has garnered 36 National Magazine Awards since its debut in 1925 - more than any other publication. Edited by Pulitzer Prize winner David Remnick, the magazine has had only five editors in its 80-year history.
Each week, Audible and the editorial staff of The New Yorker work together to select a variety of the issue's best articles from The Talk of the Town, Fiction, The Critics, and more. Each article is read in its entirety. The New Yorker is available in audio exclusively at audible.com.
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.

FROM STEVE FELDBERG, PROGRAMMING DIRECTOR, AUDIBLE:
If you're like me, there's so much great writing out there that demands to be read, but you just don't have time to read it. That's what makes our audio version of "The New Yorker" so rewarding. Each week, I can listen to at least a half-dozen stories from the most literate magazine on Earth. So far I've heard David Sedaris, Jonathan Franzen, and John Updike, plus other entertaining and informative stuff from the magazine's staff writers. If you're going to spend your commuting time wisely, or you're looking for a more intellectual way of multi-tasking, this is the subscription for you!
