Longform Audio Tracks

Hey everybody, I just had an idea and I wanted to know what you all think.

I love The Verge's Longform stories. I love them so much that I wish I had more time to just sit and read. With that said, I also love The Verge's podcasts and shows. I think it would be really cool if for every longform story, there was the ability to listen to the writer (or any other verge staff member) read it out loud to you. I realize that I could put the text through text-to-speech, but that isn't good for listening to long passages.

With this, I could listen to the best writing on the internet as I drive to work or as I am working.

What do you all think? Does anyone else really crave this as well?
