More Nate DiMeo on NPR's "Day to Day"

Today's NPR program "Day to Day" had the voice of Nate DiMeo elaborating on his thoughts contained in the Slate story "Read Me a Story, Brad Pitt: When Audiobook Casting Goes Terribly Wrong" mentioned in my post last Sunday.

Give a listen here to "When Audio Books Jar the Ear" - it's extra good when you can HEAR a clip of Brad's perfectly dreadful Spanish accent! Plus, I love the fact that DiMeo names Jim Dale's narration of the Harry Potter audiobooks the "gold standard." Great pointers on what makes a really good - or really bad -audiobook in an excellent just-under four minute commentary.
