Audible Editor Reviews

Volume 7 of the iMinds Generalist audio publication brings listeners up-to-date on everything from Ponzi Schemes to New Wave film to the nature versus nurture debate. These stand-alone episodes are all about eight minutes in length but they're packed with useful knowledge that can be consumed on-the-go, whether listeners are taking a jog around the block, cooking dinner, or driving to the cinema to see a film by Jean-Luc Godard. Alternating performers and varying musical accompaniment help orient listeners to the material, which always remains accessible without being dumbed down. The vocal delivery is smooth and engaging, implanting listeners with an encyclopedic store of knowledge before they even know what hit them.

Excellent Compilation

The individual eight minute segments are wonderful, but these compilations are awesome. I hope they keep putting together these hour plus long segments, much easier to collect them all and to listen to.
