EDITED: discussion progressing over in one of the New Here? threads... my goof for not looking a little more carefully before posting...

Yay!! I just heard it -- what a nice little article. It was really fun talking with Cyrus (the interviewer) and I was so happy that he played that clip of my favorite librivox recording (Rainer's Awful German Language). Heehee!

Here's a Direct Link to the story (for Windows Media Player):

He interviewed me for about 20 minutes, but all that got into the final was the fact that we're recording the play, "The Importance of Being Earnest."

Hee hee!

I love the part where we're the most prominent place to get free audio books :)

Heehee! I wondered, as he said he was going to interview you next, Paula! He interviewed me FOREVER and I got cut down to two goofball sentences ;-)

Excellent, first time the international projects are mentioned... :)

Kara, your link goes to the MBA story - here's the correct link: http://www.theworld.org/wma.php?id=02078

Whow :shock: , im shocked (in a positive sense) that I'm mentioned there and they even played a piece of my recording. Thanks Kara, for your praise. "The most prominent place to get free audio books". In half a year they will say "The most prominent place to get audio books", without the free and audible can close down (o.k., forgot the modern books). And really, great that they mentioned the international projects.

Not goofball, Kara. You sounded great! You too, Raynr!! And, of course, Hugh always sounds wonderful.
