The best narrators disappear as you listen. The voice blends so smoothly with the story as the actor skillfully creates characters, manages emotions and paces drama that the listener no longer notices she is being read to. Megan Tusing accomplishes just this...
Narrator Megan Tusing is authoritative and credible as she delivers Ashford's ideas in an easy-to-listen to and well-paced voice. She demonstrates her storytelling skills in bringing the important lessons of flexing to life....Tusing is in perfect step with Ashford and her message.
