Imagine standing on a box in the middle of a busy city, dressed as a white-faced bride, and silently using your eyes to ask people for money. Or touring Europe in a punk cabaret band, and finding a place to sleep each night by reaching out to strangers on Twitter. For Amanda Palmer, actions like these have gone beyond satisfying her basic needs for food and shelter - they've taught her how to turn strangers into friends, build communities, and discover her own giving impulses.

Where does The Wild Diet rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's one of the most entertaining and liberating diet books I've ever read, fun, inspiring and overall insightful. I just felt freed from every dogma and preconception about diet and what I should eat, and accept that being closer to nature and ultimately having a more holistic approach to health it's what does make a difference. From a long time vegan who rediscovered ethical, healthy and wild meat, I cannot recommend it enough!

What does Abel James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I am just soooooo used to Abel's voice from his podcast I highly appreciate him spending the time to record these 6h+ Thanks Abel!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, totally, I actually almost did as I went out for about 4 walks in 3 days - I am pretty sure that contributed to the leaner physique I developed after listening to the book *wink*
