LeVar Burton Reads

What it’s about: A brand new podcast featuring LeVar Burton reading short fiction.

What made me tune in: This is basically Reading Rainbow for the adults who grew up with it.

My favorite things: Primarily featuring science fiction and fantasy, Burton’s enthusiasm for the stories he reads is contagious. The voices and sound effects used in each episode are engaging and fit the stories so well that they almost go unnoticed. I love the way he takes the time to explain why he chose each story and what aspects of it he likes the best. So far, each episode has been under an hour and fits nicely into a day’s commute.

Who it’s great for: Anyone who grew up on Reading Rainbow. Fans of audiobooks looking for something shorter to try.

Abby’s rating: five-shells
