The New Yorker Examines Climate Change
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.
AudioFile’s Alan Minskoff and host Jo Reed discuss The Fragile Earth, an eye-opening collection of climate change nonfiction from The New Yorker magazine. Kaleo Griffith, Gabra Zackman, and Cat Gould narrate with engagement, clarity, and an admirable mix of insistence and calm. Written by many of the magazine’s most well-known authors, including Elizabeth Kolbert, Bill McKibben, Burkhard Bilger, Kathryn Schulz, and Ian Frazer, the pieces focus on “how we got here, where we are, and what we can do now.” The narrators’ articulate, unruffled readings are essential; they keep us listening to news that must no longer be avoided.
