Robin Whitten and Jo Reed Discuss The Audie Award Finalist
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
This 2020 Audie Finalist is told in the voices of the women interviewed. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten talk about the feeling of genuine interaction that personalizes the audiobook format. For those looking for something new in inspirational listening, this audiobook is a creative experiment worth exploring. Two hundred women from many backgrounds were asked the same five questions. Interviewees range from actress Ashley Judd to chef Alice Waters to Nobel Peace Laureate Rigoberta Menchú, all of whom speak passionately on the unifying theme of the importance of social justice.
