    I haven't. I listen to whatever I find at the thrifts. I will keep an eye out.

    I like where this thread is going. I'm guessing if it's a shitty reader, the whole story is ruined.

    I got into audio books last summer while mowing at a golf course. I mostly just listened to stuff I had already read. I would suggest Audible's version of Invisible Man. The voice actor is absolutely incredible.

    Pretty much, though a good story is hard to kill. However, a fantastic reader can elevate the best of stories. Grover Gardner, Craig Wasson, and Frank Muller are some of the best in my opinion. Benjamin Percy is a writer who read his own most recent novel, /Red Moon/, and knocked it out of the park. He's got this booming deep voice, but turned out to be a decent voice actor as well.

    I'm actually almost done with the Harry Potter series on audiobook. I use my phone too. It's helped a lot in alleviating boredom of driving around so much. Looking to do some other child-fiction series from my childhood soon.

    Yeah. Tried some free, crowd-sourced audiobooks from Librivox and the readers were terrible.

    I really like Audible books with Whispersync, where you can listen to a book and then pick up where you left off while reading on your Kindle later.

    NWT Peter Millar Nylon stretch (took me a minute to realize that the leather on the buckle is to protect it not decorative)
    And a CYDWOQ belt that my daughter copped from me immediately.

    Just finished White Fang and The Call of the Wild, which I got for my birthday. I read those back in grade school.

    I've wanted to get into fictional audiobooks for the long rides!
    I am open to suggestions for starters.

    Do you guys know "This American Life"? Often on NPR on Sundays but I think you can get podcasts too. It's so good and I think the genre would resonate with this crowd of aesthetics, pseudo romantics, misers, and those with general appreciation of a good, well-told story.

    Yeah we were not directly in the city, just in the general Boston vicinity.

    Podcast crew checking in, Adam Carolla is pretty funny, although I don't agree with him politcally. Lets not get into that though.

    +1. This week's episode about the guy that was loosely linked to the Boston Marathon bombings who was killed by the FBI is amazing.

    WTF with Marc Maron is good to great depending on the guest.

    The Roundtable of Gentleman for some very crass and often hilarious discussion about strange news stories.

    There's a five part series called Analyze Phish on the Earwolf network where Scott Wittels (a writer for Parks and Rec) tries to convince Scott Auckerman that he should like Phish and it's amazing.

    All of the this american life cast-offs and associated shows are pretty good too; the moth, wiretap, planet money (if youre interested in economics), strangers, etc. How did this get made is also pretty good if you love terrible movies, and the vynil cafe (very canadian, kind of cheesy, but the host is a good storyteller).

    i also tend to listen to alot of old radio serials in podcast form, like an audio book but shorter.

    Ah alright.

    Well this is a long shot, but if anyone lives with T distance and wants to carpool for a afternoon of thriftage I'd be down. You'll have my gratitude and a sixer of the good stuff. I'm tired of hitting the same 2 spots within train distance from me.
