What a Wonderful World
The online, vowel-averse magazine Trvl delivers this series of stories read aloud. Each one aims to transport us to an iconic world city or destination - the bicycle cult of Amsterdam; the specificity of New York's delis and booksellers; the unique bustle of Jerusalem and Bangkok - and is enhanced by ambient sound. The feed is dormant, but those who subscribe to The Guardian's Audio Long Reads will enjoy working through this modest backlist, in which each episode runs from 15 to 20 minutes.
Gateway episodes: London (5 Feb 2016) / Jerusalem (29 Jan 2016) / Amsterdam (1 Jan 2016)
