As you may have noticed, the magazine occasionally has an audio feature on its online TOC. Last week's, for instance:

This week in the magazine, David Remnick writes about global warming and a new documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth," featuring Al Gore. Here, courtesy Simon & Schuster Audio, Elizabeth Kolbert reads the introduction and preface from her book "Field Notes from a Catastrophe," which grew out of her award-winning three-part series in The New Yorker last year.

PLUS: Last April, Elizabeth Kolbert discussed climate change with Amy Davidson.

There are so many great possibilities here—I hope that in the rumored upcoming web redesign, there'll be new audio content weekly. Imagine what's in the audio vaults, and what outside events and interviews they can put up if the magazine has or can get the rights to them. I'm really looking forward to seeing what they do with this.
