    I only joined the Channel last month so I have only just seen this conversation. I am a professional audiobook narrator and I was in touch with Dr McGilchrist about precisely this some time last year and was told that Dr McGilchrist is himself already recording TMWT chapter by chapter. Personally, I can’t imagine a better person to be doing this, however, if it is something that other channel members are considering, there are some important considerations to be borne in mind.

    The most critical of these is that the major audiobook distributors (Audible/iTunes etc) have quite stringent requirements for audio that is going to be distributed on their platforms. Basically, it is hard to meet these without professional audio recording and editing equipment/software. If individual members were going to undertake to record/edit chapters, without there being common agreed standards, it would be an immense undertaking to pull the production into distributable shape.
