SUSAN, LINDA, NINA & COKIE The Extraordinary Story of the Founding Mothers of NPR

by | Read by Lisa Napoli

Biography & Memoir • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Lisa Napoli delivers her absorbing and informative biography of the "founding mothers" of National Public Radio with attractive energy and enthusiasm. While not a professional narrator, Napoli is an experienced radio and television journalist as well as author; her clarity, thoughtful pacing, and engaged narration suit the audiobook well. Susan Stamberg, Linda Wertheimer, Nina Totenberg, and Cokie Roberts came from disparate backgrounds, yet their shared passion for accurate, vivid storytelling and truth-telling, and their humor and stubbornness, largely made NPR's news programs the powerhouses they are today. Napoli has written an eye-opening, often funny, sometimes horrifying story that includes madcap escapades, thrilling scoops, and misogynistic misadventures. It leaves listeners profoundly grateful that these four tireless, tough, witty, kind women persevered to give us NPR. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
