What:  The Sequences is a soon to be released book that organises and presents the core teachings from Less Wrong, a community blog devoted to refining the art of human rationality. We would like to make an audiobook version of this 3-volume behemoth. 

Why:  At Castify we much prefer to listen to big books than read them as we're less likely to fall asleep while listening on a run than reading on the couch. By making an audio version of The Sequences we're hoping to actually listen to the whole thing and to help others do the same.

How:  We already have about a third of the sequences read, you can find them on Castify.co.  We work hard to produce quality recordings and have a dedicated reader ready to record the rest of The Sequences.

When:  If this kickstarter is a success we plan to have the audiobook completed in March 2015.

Looking forward to diving into the work!

Risks and challenges

We've already produced 8 sequences from Less Wrong. It can be challenging to produce such complex content into audio but we're dedicated to making it a great experience. Our track record with Less Wrong has been solid, we've been producing audio content for them for 2 years.
