I certainly hope you do. Technology has brought on different ways to have access to story telling. I must admit that I was a critic of reading from an iPad, or a Kindle; however I have come to embrace it. I still prefer paper, traditional books. Romantic reasons I suppose. Audio Books came about years ago to help people with poor eyesight, or people looking to beat the stress of traffic jams. Now we have podcasts. Here is a podcast from The New Yorker.
