Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Pearl Mackie, Pippa Haywood, Tanya Moodie

Science Fiction • 5.5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2021

Stop everything and listen to this stunning eco-thriller, first published as a BBC podcast. Narrator Pearl Mackie's earnest, affable portrayal of a librarian who is lured by a recording of a rainforest that her government inexplicably deems dangerous will immerse listeners. Tanya Moody, in turn, offers a chilling, and quite sultry, performance as a villain. Pippa Haywood's tone as the rogue underworld misfit adds a much-needed layer of dry humor to this timely story of what happens when humans overestimate their importance in a delicate ecosystem. While FOREST 404 is a cautionary tale, it's also a convincing and hopeful plea to listeners. Unsolicited advice: Wear earbuds, don't skip the interludes, and listen to the bonus interviews at the end. G.P.
