Also, listen to audio from The New Yorker Festival readings and panel discussions, recorded live in New York City.
The Big Med article was exceptionally thought provoking and well written, I appreciated how the author shared personal experiences and perhaps narrated his own story?
I've previously felt that the audible edition of the New Yorker lacked structure and did not provide adequate separation between the articles to allow the listener to pause, reflect, and then prepare to listen to a new article. This edition was narrated and structured the way I think they all should be. Thanks!
