01-06-2023 • 8 mins

Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten are honoring AudioFile’s 2023 Golden Voice narrators — the stars of the audiobook universe. These narrators have made significant contributions to the audiobook art form. Today Jo and Robin are celebrating Marin Ireland, a skilled narrator who loves to disappear into the stories she narrates, moving seamlessly among the characters and making each distinct for listeners. She won the 2020 Best Female Narrator Audie Award for NOTHING TO SEE HERE by Kevin Wilson, a surprising listen with interesting challenges for the narrator. Marin has an intuitive gift with her character voices, and those are on display in all of our Essential Listens. Stay tuned for our conversation with Marin here on Behind the Mic later this month.
