Just as Harry Potter launched J.K. Rowling’s career, so too did it launch Jim Dale’s.
Dale, who went on to record the entire series, stumbled into an agreement to read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone for his very first audiobook gig ever.
He reflects on the events that led him to an incredibly unlikely — emphasis on incredible — career in an interview with the Behind the Mic podcast.
You can read portions of it on Literary Hub, which includes links to the full podcast episode at the end.
