I also love The Expanse series audiobooks, but that one has a male narrator the whole way through.

I read 'One of Us is Lying' recently, that had four different narrators for four different PoV characters. Mystery/YA genre, very easy listening. :)

Vale bastards are called Stone, and those from the Stormlands (where we first find Stannis) are called Storm. There's a noteworthy bastard from almost every region in the books.

Aww. I was a big fan of OG Roswell, but I've been enjoying the new take on it as well. Adult me can relate to it more. If you ever give it a try, let me know what you think!

My company does the Marvel Netflix shows, and Black Lightning! I'm glad you like them. I'm really not sure why some CW shows have AD when they get put up on Netflix (like Riverdale) and why some don't (The Flash).

That makes sense! I guess it's about finding the right balance between conveying as much information as you can while still letting the mood of the story be felt between the descriptions.

We also stick to the simple present tense and try very hard to avoid the passive voice, but other companies seem quite unconcerned about those rules, especially British AD.

I find that some writers leave far more stuff undescribed than I might, so I wonder if too much description can get distracting. Also rules regarding naming characters seem to differ wildly - we only ever do it after they've been introduced in dialogue.

Out of curiosity, what are some Netflix projects that you've enjoyed the AD for? I know my company has a different set of rules for writing AD than other companies, but I'd love to know what stuff works and doesn't work for different audiences.

Happy to help! Feel free to ask me anything that might help clarify points of interest! :)

Sorry to butt into your conversation, but it's outsourced! I work for a company that writes AD for Netflix shows. I agree that it would be nice to credit the narrators (and writers), but Netflix, in particular, doesn't.

As a sighted (probably underpaid) person who writes audio description for a living, I suggest putting the AD on and just doing something else that keeps your eyes off the screen. It goes from sounding ridiculous to actually being helpful really fast. :)

Do you use audio description with movies and television? If so, do you enjoy the experience?

I had the same experience! Not sure where the "snobby" label comes from; people were lovely to me!

I'm binging my way through the show, and I was very upset at that part! I've been using that emoji as a shit-eating grin (no pun intended) kind of thing, and definitely not as a "grimace face".
