AudioFile went Behind the Mic to hear from Peter Berkrot about narrating THE YID, written by Paul Goldberg. Peter tells us that as he prepared for the narration, it brought back memories of his own family.
“It took me back to memories of my childhood, growing up and listening to my grandparents, and great aunts and uncles speaking Yiddish and laughing.”—Narrator Peter Berkrot
