Project Main Details

monthly magazine in audio format 
We're one of the world's largest science and technology magazines, and we're looking for voice talent to read five or six articles a month as part of an audio app for our subscribers.

Our magazine works hard to make very complicated subjects fun and entertaining, so we're looking for someone who can read columns and features with enthusiasm, intelligence, and warmth. The ideal talent will be able to make the article sound as it would if you were telling the story to a friend.

Script Details

The ideal talent will be able to make the article sound as it would if you were telling the story to a friend.  
Society must make two big leaps in order to enable truly self-driving cars. The first is technological. Engineers need to improve today’s cars (which can warn a driver that he’s drifting out of his lane) beyond current Google and Darpa prototypes (which maintain the lane on their own) to the point where automobiles can edge forward through a construction zone while their owners sleep inside.

The technological leap will be good for everyone. Machines are incredibly reliable. Humans are not. Most car crashes are caused by human error (a 2004 World Health Organization report put the figure at 90 percent). As safety technologies like antilock brakes and traction-control systems have taken hold, the number of fatal accidents has dropped 35 percent between 1970 and 2009, even though cars drive more than a trillion miles farther annually.

“Robots have faster reaction times and will have better sensors than humans,” says Seth Teller, a professor of computer science and engineering at MIT. “The number of accidents will never reach zero, but it will decrease substantially.” Don’t think of self-driving cars as a convenience—they’re a safety system.
