This guy is a fucking terrible narrator, please stop shilling his videos. His cadence is inappropriate and he talks at the speed of a snail.

It's really frustrating to me that I haven't been able to find a single narrator that really does Butler's book justice. Nobody has the outraged tone that certain passages really deserve.
Are there any good books that could use an audio version?
I tend to listen at 2x speed, click the gear symbol in the web player, or copy past the url into VLC and use the menu: playback:speed:increase or use the rectangular-bracket-key shortcuts
You could also provide better sources, or narrate something yourself for that special outrage tone. I'm going to continue posting what i Have.

Are you offering to narrate something ?

Don't be such an asshole. He is doing it for free and I think he is doing a good job. I'm also narrating on YT and it is actually a shitload of work. If you can do a better job, then do it. Maybe then you will realize, how much effort there is behind this work and show more appreciation.
Bro I can make a better audio by reading in my head

This dude's voice is distracting. If he wants people to appreciate his stuff then he should drop the long gaps between speaking, pick up the pace, and stop sounding like he's sobbing all the time.

For real though, more people doing this is good. Not only is there a better chance of good shit, there are more options so people can listen to something more preferable to them.

Michael Parenti: Capitalism vs. Reality https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcImfx8tunI
>>218777 Sheila Fitzpatrick is spewing anti communist rhetoric why are you posting this hack
>>218776 pay attention david graeber has weird theory he thinks care-workers and maintenance-workers are a class. he also ignores facts like the proletariat growing faster than service workers. So take this with a grain of salt
>>219051 Fitzpatrick didn't write the book, China Miéville did. The book has been praised from many people due to the storytelling, not the politics of it. I posted it after reading this review: https://www.socialist.net/review-october-the-story-of-the-russian-revolution.htm >In this respect and many others, Miéville's book is a wholly worthy effort that deserves to be on any comrade's reading list in this centenary year of the Russian Revolution. Here's an article from someone who is mad that it is too sympathetic and not outright dogmatic towards communism: https://www.spectator.co.uk/2017/05/china-mievilles-take-on-the-russian-revolution-is-wonderfully-dated/ >I was brought up on similar Marxist histories that were sympathetic to the revolution and took its idealism as a given: the revolutionaries’ hearts were in the right place, even if ‘mistakes’ (a murderous purge or a bread queue) occurred. But — with a very few Hobsbawmite or Trotskyite exceptions — nothing like Miéville’s book has appeared from mainstream publishers in English for around 40 years. So it’s nostalgic to read once again an account that starts from the premise that the revolutions in Russia — which irrevocably changed the world — were in essence and intent a good thing. >>219056 I personally haven't read the book and only posted it because I know it's a popular book for anarchists. I've heard the history the book gets into is the main takeaway from reading it. I would think his weird theory doesn't negate the history that is brought up though I could be wrong.

Engines, Entropy, and Value From Alpha To Omega https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/fromalpha2omega/episodes/2014-02-22T01_42_40-08_00 This week our guest is Dr. William Paul Cockshott, a reader in the Computer Science Department of Glasgow University. Paul was trained as an economist, then as a computer scientist, and he has made contributions to the fields of image compression, 3D television, and parallel compilers. He is also known for his work in applying econophysics to classical economics, the field of economic computability, and as the co-author of the book 'Towards a new Socialism', advocating for the more efficient and democratic planning of a complex economy. In this show we discuss the origins of classical political economy, and how it was influenced by the rapid advances in the world of physics. We talk of the importance of Watt and his steam engine, the development of the theories of thermodynamics and entropy, and their importance in economy. The work of Babbage and Alan Turing also get a mention, as well as the human as universal robot. We also discuss the overwhelming empirical evidence for Marx’s Labor Theory of Value, why it is that it works, and the importance of the work of previous guest Prof. Gregory Chaitin in the modern factory. Oh yes, and some roman pottery, chinese crossbows from the Qin Dynasty, and how difficult it is to fold your clothes.

We discuss a possible vision of how a future socialist society would work.

We talk of the Socialist Calculation debate, the Soviet plans for their own internet, Google vs a planned economy, and the problems with Council Communism.

The number refers to working from 9 am to 9 pm six days a week and is said to be common among the country's big technology companies and start-ups."If we find things we like, 996 is not a problem," Ma said in a blog post Sunday on Chinese social media site Weibo. Yes Jack Ma endorses cybernetic socialism but he also wants to exploits workers for longer, so it's a mixed bag.
