Journalist Michael Specter's throaty voice and emotional yet precise delivery perfectly suit his examination of the coronavirus pandemic and the man who is trying to save us from it, Dr. Anthony Fauci. Based on Specter's profile of Fauci for THE NEW YORKER, this short and gripping audio production blends interviews with Fauci (and Fauci's wife, herself a bioethicist with the NIH), historical audio clips and news reports, and a fact-filled narrative that captures the listener's attention as effectively as a suspense novel. This time, though, the terrifying plot points are real. Dr. Fauci, with a Brooklyn accent, is colloquial, disarming, and funny; he's also ferociously smart, eloquent, and stubborn. Specter, who has long written about science, is knowledgeable, eloquent, and impassioned. Together, they are riveting. A.C.S.
