Audible should be ashamed

This isn’t a book or a podcast or a lecture. It’s audio ripped from a video—a short one, at that. There’s no context given of any of the speakers (because as a video, you get on screen text so you know who’s talking), but this is like listening to a YouTube video while you’re in the other room. No idea who is saying what. Huge sections of the content are nothing but sound effects or the soundtrack from the movies that are being discussed. Which, again, is fine for video, NOT FOR AUDIO ONLY.

This is an underhanded and lazy way to add more content to the site, but this content is weakly presented and a ripoff at the cost of a full-price book. Same goes for the other offerings from this series. Don’t get them. And complain to Audible for a lackluster screening process.

It was ok

I loved the actors interviews but it felt like it was the audio from a video but I think it was worth the price and time
