Pushkin Industries Announces January 6 Tapes Audiobook with Foreword by Preet Bharara
Pushkin Industries announced today the publication of The January 6th Tapes: The Unabridged Audio Recordings of the Select Committee to Investigate the Attack on the United States Capitol (Pushkin Industries; November 15, 2022). This audiobook offers the complete, unabridged compilation of the hearings that gripped America, accompanied by short descriptions of any visually exclusive elements. This is the only audiobook that will contain all nine public hearings in one easily accessible place.
The January 6th Tapes includes every moment, from opening statements by Congressman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) and Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY), to Cassidy Hutchinson’s riveting surprise testimony to the moment that The Select Committee announced its intent to subpoena former President Donald J. Trump. More than 20 hours (CK) of dramatic recordings include testimony from Trump allies, aides, and lawyers; legal experts; participants in the attacks; and members of the team tasked with protecting the Capitol building that day.
Preet Bharara’s foreword contextualizes the day America’s democracy was on the brink. Bharara is one of the country’s most respected and celebrated lawyers and legal analysts who served as the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York from 2009 to 2017 and is host of the podcast Stay Tuned with Preet.
“What makes Pushkin Audiobooks different is our focus on powerful audio experiences,” said Brendan Francis Newnam, VP, Special Audio Projects. “These hearings, which include the voices of the people involved in this stunning moment in contemporary American history, make for a riveting listening experience. You understand the stakes in a way you simply couldn’t from simply reading about it.”
The January 6th Tapes is the newest addition to Pushkin Industries’ growing list of audiobooks, which include Lake Bell’s Inside Voice, the actor/writer/director’s exploration of voice; last year’s Miracle and Wonder: Conversations with Paul Simon by Malcolm Gladwell and Bruce Headlam; an unabridged, sound-rich version of Michael Lewis’s iconic first book, Liar’s Poker; and Joshua Cohen’s novel The Netanyahus, the winner of the 2022 Pulitzer Prize in fiction.
