If you’re new to my blog, welcome to Top Ten Tuesday. It’s held over at That Artsy Reader Girl, where every week bloggers list their top 10 being asked about. This week is about all things audio.
So what I’ve included is a mix of different things to do with audio — podcasts and audiobooks and audible shows.
Read this and then listen to the podcast and have your heart broken into a kazillion piece with the power of these two narratives. Sniffs. I have still not recovered from Sadie’s search for her sister, and the podcaster who is tracing her journey months after she’s disappeared.
This is Michael Connelly following a true crime case, over a season — the kind of case not covered by the media. I haven’t yet started listening to this one, but I have high hopes. And expectations.
This is an investigation into the death of August Ames, and her life too. It’s a show by Audible, and sensitively handed by the narrator and investigator. I found it engrossing because he delved objectively into the issue she was dealing with in her personal life.
I listened to this after reading Michelle McNamara’s book. This is the story of the search for the Golden State Killer by the man within the police department who never gave up looking for him — Paul Holes. It’s riveting and I marvelled at how frustrating things got — but he never gave up.
This is described as a fictional true crime podcast, which kind of made me laugh trying to figure that out. But then I got into the story, and i was utterly enraptured. I wonder if this is the wave of the future in terms of reading or listening?
