PODCAST: The Sandman
Updated: Sep 17, 2021
Steve Phillips and Matthew Layton present #AudioBookClub - the world’s only interactive audiobook review and recommendation podcast.
On this episode...
...Steve and Matthew discuss possibly the audiobook with the biggest production budget of all time: “The Sandman” by Neil Gaiman.
Based on Gaiman's series of graphic novels from the late 80s early 90s, this audiobook boasts a cast that numbers amongst its members some very expensive actors indeed - James McAvoy, Michael Sheen, Andy Serkis, Riz Ahmed, Sandra Dickinson....
The production is lavish - a series of immersive soundscapes that bring to life an extraordinary eleven-hour blockbusting film in the movie theatre of the listener's mind.
And what does this genre-defining moment mean for the future of the audiobook as a medium?
Matthew and Steve investigate, then invite you to get involved in the conversation.
