    My favorite contemporary Latinists are, or were at some point, members of this forum. :)

    I've heard of those celebrity Latinists and seen a video here and there, but I'm not really following any of them, so I don't have a favorite.

    He sounds robotic to a lot of people, but most do.

    One of my favourite Latinists is Corrado Russo (see here and here) who has recorded several works of Cicero, Livy, Apuleius and other authors in audiobook format, and makes them available for free. Often when walking home from the local train station I listen to one of his recordings.

    Thank you so much for those links. I just spent the last 30 minutes downloading material -which will likely be listened to while walking as well.
