Behind the Mic: On Untamed by Glennon Doyle, Read by the Author
Jo Reed and Emily Connelly Discuss a Liberating, Powerful, and Heartfelt Memoir about Self Love
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.
Glennon Doyle opens her heart to listeners in her vivid new memoir. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly talk about the power of Doyle’s writing and her moving narration. Doyle is a bestselling author, motivational speaker, and philanthropist, and she narrates with passion as she gets incredibly personal with her storytelling. She speaks about how society has “tamed” women to act and live in certain prescribed ways, stuffing every aspect of their true selves away. She shares insights on why it is so essential to listen to our inner voices, and how her life has changed as a result. No one but Doyle herself could read this memoir.
