Johnny Heller: The Audio Audiobooks Interview

Adam Boretz -- July 26th, 2012

Here at Listen Up, we’re very excited to launch our new Audio Audio Interview Series — Q&As with narrators, audio publishers, and authors, all recorded live, and all presented to you, The Listener, in audio format.

And today, we start things off with a bang: my one-on-one chat the inimitable Johnny Heller, one of the industry’s best narrators, winner of multiple Audie Awards, Listen Up Awards, Golden Earphone Awards, and one of Audiofile’s Top 50 voices of the 20th Century.

Last week, Johnny and I got together at the Recorded Books studio and chatted about everything from his latest project and celebrity impressions to preparing for a recording session and remaining true to the author’s vision. Along the way, Johnny offers tips to aspiring narrators and answers some probing questions sent in from fans via Twitter. And, needless to say, things get a little saucy.

Listen Up would like to give special thanks to Recorded Books, Rob Granniss of Brick Shop Audiobooks, and engineer and editor extraordinaire Marc Avila for all their help and support.
