On Rupert Degas, Golden Voice Narrator
Celebrating the 2022 Golden Voices
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.
Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten are celebrating Rupert Degas, one of AudioFile’s 2022 Golden Voice narrators. Golden Voices are the stars of the audiobook universe, and we are excited to honor Rupert with that title. He has an exceptional ability to bring different characters to life, with an extremely varied range, from playful and humorous to dense intellectual literary fiction and classics. Stay tuned for Jo Reed’s interview with Rupert coming later in June.
