I love reading your “Letters from an American”, and am less likely to experience the audio version. However, I may be an outlier, as I know many folks who love their audio, so I see this as a wonderful development. Please keep up the good work—you are one of the few purveyors of information whom I trust unreservedly.

Thank you Heather! I look forward to trying this while I have morning tea and take care of my pets. They will all send you thank you notes since they generally have to wait for breakfast while I read.

Great news! I personally like both delivery options, but my hope is that audio will attract an additional audience. Your knowledge and understanding are desperately needed right now.

Thanks. I’ll continue to read. My sister, though, who has vision issues, is relying more on Podcasts, and I so appreciate the extra effort to include the needs of more listeners.

I just listened to the audio version of you interviewing President Biden in 2022 and loved it. I was struck by what a great voice you have for doing interviews—nonpartisan if there is such a thing in audio. And how respectful you were with Biden while maintaining an equal footing. I don't think I can give up my mornings with your letters but I'll now be able to take you in the car when my day starts to early to read news. Thank you!

Absolutely. Fantastic. You bring yourself to life (if that’s not too clumsy a way to say it). Love this.

Great to be able to listen to these just before sleeping. I would say though that you would be better off with no music than with what is used, which seems too light and a bit annoying. Something serious - even patriotic - might fit better.

I am grateful you are doing this, especially for those of us whose vision is a challenge. I will read your posts as long as I can, but it is so wonderful to know that I won't lose you if my vision gets much worse. However, my very first thought was "HOW can Heather add another thing to her plate?!"

Good to see format options, new openings, willingness for ways to reach out more.

Myself, I'll stick to print, thank you.
