Extremely disappointing - not as portrayed
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Not that you would guess it from the description, but this is a very poor quality recording of a panel discussion at a large conference. It is undated. The recording almost sounds as though it was made from the audience using a smartphone; though it would probably be better if it had. Sound levels are all over the place and never good enough. The discussion is rambling, there's no structure to it, and it is clearly old.
Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
There isn't one. There's a panel chair and he is just as indecipherable as the panellists.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The New Yorker Festival - Advocacy Journalism?
I'd throw the whole thing away. It is a rip off.
Any additional comments?
If you really MUST listen to it, play it at 1.5 times normal speed and it is still rambling, but at least the voices are a bit clearer in the higher register!
