Behind the Mic: The Arabs

Narrator Derek Perkins always brings a fluency and engagement to even the most challenging titles and subjects, including history. Derek goes Behind the Mic for AudioFile and gives us some insight into his preparation for Eugene Rogan’s THE ARABS.

“Much of Professor Rogan’s history—which goes from the 16th century to today—is from the Arab perspective.”— Derek Perkins

When our reviewer says that a history is “as dramatic and fraught as any novel,” we know that is accessible listening. Listen to a sound sample of Derek’s well-researched pronunciations from THE ARABS, here.
