Thank you for the episode! I was completely unaware of these services, and found them highly interesting.

I really liked this episode, good insight into how audio production is done on an expert level. I'd love to hear how Lee is connected to the project and maybe a how you got into audii stuff. I bet you Lee is a Forth guy!

The Talking Newspaper arriving weekly was a highlight for a couple of my Great Aunts when I was growing up in the '70s in the UK. I know that groups of both sighted and not folks organized "Listening Coffee Mornings" through church at that time.
It's interesting to think that then, Talking Books were a thing primarily for visually-impared people only, whereas now, audio books are a thing for everyone. Audible (and the rest) owe their existence to standing on the shoulders of giants.
A great episode that reminded me that people do good stuff for other people for reasons other than financial reward.

Forgot to mention that it should be said that the local paper in question was the (still extant) Clitheroe Advertiser & Times.

@davemorris: To correct your comment on the Community News -- Clitheroe is in Lancashire not Yorkshire.

Thanks for the correction.
I'm embarrassed to admit that I was a student in Manchester for about 5 years and then worked at Lancaster University another 5 or so (both in Lancashire, for the benefit of the non-English), and wasn't sure about the location of Clitheroe.
Not a mistake I'll make again :-)
