  1. Jim Kukral is an interesting and genuine guy. I enjoyed his book Unskippable.
    Fascinating discussion about Audiobooks. I have an idea. Full cast Audio dramas with moving pictures to show setting etc. I even have a name for this new media… movies… get it? Although thinking about it, nah, it’ll never catch on.
    Great show today.
