Ben Matchar


Ben founded Talking Book in a farmhouse in Vermont where he lived with a ghost and a massage therapist. He has won more than 100 Pulitzer Prizes, in his heart, where it really matters.


Kris Hartrum

Senior Editor

As protector of the babes and co-founder, Kris helped birth Talking Book into the world through the potent canals of his amygdala. His favorite books include How To Make Money In Your Spare Time and classics of radical ethical stoicism.
