Mike Bodnar is a former continuity announcer, regional newsreader and TV & radio presenter.

Mike's latest book – Against the Current – is the story of how he and his wife left New Zealand for the UK, choosing along the way to take a year-long detour through France, living and travelling on a boat.

He has just recorded it in audio format, but he did all of the voice work himself.

That seemed like a great opportunity to catch up with Mike and find out about the good, the bad and the ugly of recording your own audiobooks.
