Typos in performance

As with many issues of the New Yorker there are places where the narrator flubs the first take and redoes it. However, they don't bother to edit out the flubbed part. I find this to be both insulting and unprofessional. I also wish they would cut out the very predicable and boring editorials and give us more articles.
