With its amazingly evocative sound design, THE WALK, a new podcast by bestselling author Naomi Alderman, artfully places you, the listener, in the middle of the action. In fact, the actors are talking to you. "We know something is going to happen today," a mysterious woman who seems to join you in a coffee shop says quietly. "We just don't know what. We're hoping we can get you out of here on time. Walk with me," she directs. Before long, you're off on a do-or-die mission with your handler Charlie Frazer giving directions in your ear, "We're going to get through this, Walker. I haven't lost an agent yet."
The Walk's second-person narrative is unique, so you'll want to keep listening to learn your fate. Even better, use the podcast as an incentive to get out and take a real walk, combining exercise with edge-of-your-seat entertainment.
