Narrated by: Elie Hirschman
Elie currently lives somewhere in the Middle East – in the safe part, we hope. As a voiceover professional since 2004, he almost gave up on it altogether, but got yanked back in by several fine podcasts and audio drama groups. For this, he is grateful. He has a keen interest in learning and imitating accents, and is currently working on his Tony C. Smith impression. In his free time, Elie enjoys cartooning, listening to old-time radio drama, and referring to himself in the third person.

This story is superb, the narration also.
I feel there is an fine metaphor in the mechanical dismantling too.
