Less Wrong is a community blog devoted to refining the art of human rationality. Please visit our About page for more information.
LessWrong is getting ready to release an actual book that covers most of the material found in the Sequences.
We've been asked if we'd like to produce the audiobook version and the answer is yes. This is a large undertaking. The finished product will probably be over 35 hours of audio.
To help mitigate our risk we've decided to Kickstarter the audiobook. This basically allows us to pre-sell it so we're not stuck with a large production cost and no revenue.
The kickstarter campaign is here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1267969302/lesswrong-the-sequences-audiobook
If you haven't heard of us before we've already produced some sequences into audiobooks. You can see them and listen to samples which are indicative of the audio quality here.
The Less Wrong Promoted Posts feed will have every new promoted post which has been tagged with the Creative Commons Attribution License. We'll aim to have them read and to you via the podcast within 48 hours. We've found this to be a good way to keep up with Less Wrong, especially for longer articles like last month's interesting long-form post called "A Dialouge on Doublethink" by BrienneStrohl.
The Metaethics Sequence is the next installment of the sequences we've produced into audio. We now have 7 Less Wrong sequences in audio, with more on their way.
As always we appreciate your support and your feedback: email@example.com.

The audio version of the mega-sequence "How to Actually Change Your Mind" is now available. It's the biggest sequence we've done yet, coming in at over 8 hours of audio. Here at Castify we think this sequence is the most important one we've done so far.
On the wiki it says, "The most important technique that Less Wrong can offer you is 'How to Actually Change Your Mind'". I couldn't agree more. If you haven't read it already I'd strongly recommend it. If you have more free "ear time" than "eye time" or you learn better from listening this audio version is for you.
