Unimpressive, unable to remove from device!!

I didn't find this "book" helpful or interesting.
It was free, but also sent to me via email with the specific implication that it was likely of interest to me. Giving it a try, I quickly found that this claim was untrue.

I now find that I'm unable to remove it from my library. This is unacceptable! All the other downloaded audio books in my library, that I've purchased, can be removed from my device if I desire. This is disturbing and I will not be accepting any more free books from audible until I'm sure they're not bloatware.

Really? Only White Voices?

Okay. So this wasn't published this last minute. But Audible, How can you possibly think it's fine for a bunch of white critics to advance their opinions on Black Science Fiction Writers? Really? How could you not include the voice of at least one person of color? You have one more chance with me. So disappointed.

Thank you 4 the diversity

It's really nice to hear about black sci-fi writers. I actually discovered Octavia Butler's books a couple of months ago and was pleasantly surprised. I just picked up one of Jamisin's books today too. I hope this continues and expands into sci-fi writers from all over the world and from different ethnicities. Audible listeners are from all over the world and this should be reflected in the books introduced or discussed.

Thank you for taking the bull by the horns and addressing a sensitive topic, and for your honesty and transparency about the fact that black authors in sci-fi is not necessarily your usual forte.
Don't let the armchair critics belittle what is necessary and long overdue. I certainly hope to see more reviews about sci-fi authors from all over the world, all walks of life and all different ethnicities - we all need to play our part in bringing peoples of the world closer together, especially through stories.

would like a booklist

Interesting discussion of several titles. It is obvious that these editors are addicted to scfi since they all seemed to be aware of each title and/or author. I would suggest a change to the format to include a restatement of the author and title at the conclusion of each segment since I didn't catch them in the conversation.

Free does not equal good.

I've picked up a few of these free titles on Audible over the years I can honestly say I don't know if I've ever heard one. I personally like I could just be me

Great Podcast! Love the Audiobook Recs

Can't believe I overlooked this; but for a survey about it, never got around to listening... wow! Really enjoyed the discussion and it included samples. Looking forward to the rest!
