The Guardian's Audio Long Reads

Fans of long-form journalism may appreciate The Guardian's ever-growing collection of Audio Long Reads, which feature in-depth essays read by voice actors. Each Audio Long Read is selected from the newspaper's long-read articles, which feature examinations of a wide range of topics and issues penned by journalists, academics, and others. For instance, in one recent episode, actress Lucy Scott reads Jacob Mikanowski's "Behemoth, bully, thief: how the English language is taking over the planet." In this essay, Mikanowski examines how English has spread around the globe and influenced other languages. In another recent episode, Christopher Ragland reads Samanth Subramanian's recent essay about art forgery and the work of "forgery detective" James Martin. Each Audio Long Read is approximately 30- 40 minutes in length and new audio long reads are released roughly twice a week. Interested listeners can check out the podcast and can listen via the link above. Alternatively, listeners can subscribe on Soundcloud, Apple Podcasts, or Spotify.
