McSweeney's Field RecordingsI helped McSweeney’s produce this audio story collection in early-2008. I worked with them to figure out the best way to record authors all over the country read their work in their native habitats, and then edited the recordings.

And earlier this year I produced 826 Valencia’s audiobook accompaniment to Show of Hands, their new book about the golden rule. I coached juniors and seniors at San Francisco’s Mission High School to help them sound their best while reading their essays out loud. I also recorded them and edited the audio. You can buy Show of Hands (it comes with the CD) from 826 Valencia.
