Paul’s October 2021 podcast focuses on the art of audiobook narration. His guest is professional audiobook narrator Elizabeth Wiley, who has earned multiple Audie nominations, Voice Arts nominations, and AudioFile Magazine Earphones Awards. She is also a Voice Arts Award winner for narration.

Elizabeth works across a wide range of literary genres, with publishers and authors often seeking her out for her agility with dialects, rich character work, and facility with complex language.

She is a professor emerita of the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, where she taught acting, voice and speech, dialects, physical theatre and Shakespeare performance. She has also coached and directed many theatre productions in academia and professionally.
