UNSONG Audiobook Version

This is a serialized story narrated by Matt Arnold with the permission of the author, Scott Alexander.

The original text is here:

The audiobook of the novel was completed in October of 2020. Now this podcast has switched to short stories by the same author.

The last episode of this podcast will air in February 2021. I have created a new podcast for narrating audiobooks, called Fluidity:

Content warning from the narrator. In section 2 of this episode, I will sometimes omit direct quotations which would need to be voiced. In other places, I will insert descriptions of what characters said, as a substitute for actually performing the characters.

As some of you know if you have read the book, this chapter has a content warning.

When I began recording the UNSONG audiobook, I did not realize what I was in for, because the author had not yet released the chapter I am about to read to you. Section 2 graphically depicts the torments of hell. 

I believe most, or all, of you would not wish to listen to those experiences in your headphones. Regardless, I decline to enact them in a performance.

This episode does not contain plot points. I recommend you do not listen to it, but am recording it for completeness.
