If you’re wearing your headphones or earbuds, a good audio performance is the closest thing to your own thoughts.

But, don’t just take our word chatter on it, read the original article from The Guardian and considering how audio plays are more immediate, just ponder on just how much more engaging audio drama is compared to audio books!
