Odyssey fun fact

Narrators Kirby Heyborne & Lincoln Hoppe are a comedy duo?? The pair voiced two Odyssey audiobook titles recognized during the recent Youth Media Awards of the American Library Association. Heyborne narrated Rotters, Listening Library’s Odyssey-Award-winning title, and Hoppe narrated Listening Library’s Odyssey Honor title Okay for Now. It seems the two were presentient, as this video clip from their comedy site shows Heyborne tooting his own horn with Hoppe‘s support. File this under “Who knew??”
