Fussy has a lot of former journalists on staff, so we were once familiar with deadlines and breaking news.
That said ... the race to turn the January 6 committee report into an audiobook is on a completely different level than, say, waiting for election results to come in.
The Los Angeles Times profiled the head of production at Macmillan Audio, Guy Oldfield, and how he — successfully — planned to pull such a feat off.
It starts with a prediction (accurate, as it turned out) that the report would drop around Christmas.
Oldfield managed to recruit a number of audiobook narrators across the country willing to be on call over the holidays to tackle something they couldn't really prepare for.
See how all the pieces came together, from there, to launch the January 6 report audiobook in the LA Times.
