By way of tacking away from all this media negativity, I say, Isay is a good thing. David Isay. He comes at voice from different angles, but always seems to hook into something rich and strange. In a way, yes, an audible Arbus, but with more of a consistently warmer contextual depth - human histories recalled by real people who have loved and laughed, and who still do, infectively.

I start from a position of not being able to find most any USian radio listenable. The voices from StoryCorps win me over every time. What this is is, the vanishing point in which people who love are never heard in US media. I cannot listen to much NPR anymore. There are certain state reporters, at least here in Florida, whose voices are assembled by robotic hands dangling from high panoptic ceilings, rich in acetate and invincibly incurious of the human heart.

Isay's voices help one hear these things too.
