Audio v Print - Missing articles

I recently converted to audio New Yorker delighting in the new format and thus no renewing my lesser priced print edition. However the audio version only offers 'select" articles from the week and without fail the article i anticipate most seems to often be the one omitted. Surely 12 month audio subscribers should have access to these via free access to the online reader at minimum?
