Host Jo Reed and editor Robin Whitten chat about the appeal of listening to unlikely traveling companions Noah—a 79-year-old retired professor—and Michael, his 11-year-old grand nephew he barely knows. How does narrator Jason Culp nail the dialogue, bickering, and self-discovery? Our podcast discussion sheds some light on his skilled performance.
