Use a credit on Galaxy Outlaws. It's like 80 hours of audio. It's a series of short stories that's very similar in spirit and feel to Firefly

Galaxy Outlaws

I also highly recommend the Expeditionary Force series (starts with Columbus Day). The guy who does it really nails the shit out of it. The first book is a little slow, but once Skippy gets introduced it's fucking amazing.

Columbus Day
I want to thank you for suggesting Galaxy Outlaws, I'm about 3 hours in and it's great so far.

Your results might vary, but I started listening to it at 1.2x speed most of the time. He tends to space his words well, so speeding it up it still sounds pretty normal

You don't consciously realize how long 80 hours of audio book is until you really get into it. That's a lot of listening

Yeah, I'm 13 hours in now. Not even really sure what book I am on but it's still very good. If quality holds up 80 hours won't be a problem.

Most books I listen at 1.5-2.5 speed, depending on how intelligible the narrator is.

If you're looking for a great reader and a great story - James Marsters narration on the Dresden Files is S++. It's a real pleasure to listen to. I've gone back at least 3-4 times on each of the 15 books so far because Marsters as Dresden is so damn satisfying.

What devices / apps do you guys use for this? Thinking of getting podcasts / medical readings / random up and running for pendling to work.

I just use the audible app on my phone and listen via bluetooth headphones or bluetooth to my car stereo.

I use BeyondPod. For Audiobooks I just create a special folder to link to my books.

Just finished Galaxy Outlaws. Pretty happy with it on the whole. It's nice having stories about characters that take place in interesting universes. Highly recommend if you liked Firefly. I think the Narrator kills it. Plus you can't really beat 80 hours of audible for 1 credit

Just finished it myself. There was a book or two towards the middle that dragged a bit, but overall it’s pretty damned entertaining and a huge bargain. Really liked the narrator too.

The ending where Tani is getting told by her dad how much of a fucking retard she is was pretty satisfying. I hated her character so much by the end I’m glad she didn’t get a “happy” ending.
