Audio version of magazine

I'd happily pay for an audio version of the magazine read by pros, not authors.

Terrible sound quality.

Really. A seventh grader could help you guys.

Great stories - exceptionally poor audio

I've subscribed to this podcast for years, but I'm at the point of cancelling the subscription, because I rarely can listen to the stories to the end. Usually it is the poor audio quality that does me in, but sometimes it's also the voice of the narrator. Not all writers are born with pleasant reading voices.
