Really enjoy this one
I listen to a lot of podcasts. like close to 40 hours a week since I listen almost the entire time I'm at work. I enjoy this one for several reasons. First the production value is very high. Sound quality is a weak point for lots of podcasts that are just starting off but this one has been great since the start. Second, the stories are fantastic. They are not just the same old stories that you have heard a million times but with different names. The characters develop quickly and are well done. Third is the variety of story types. Its not just the same story type every time either. This is important. The only downside is that some of the stories are short and leaves you wanting to know more about what happened later in the characters lives. That is exactly what a good short story should do.

Fantastic Podcast with Original Stories
Jared I. Magee's podcast presents three well-told stories, backed up by excellent music and sound effects. The stories engage the listener, and leave you wanting more. As someone who frequently hears tedious, predictable short stories, I appreciate the careful crafting of Magee's narratives, and the calm-but-strong reading voice he employs to share them. Subscribe to this podcast! You won't regret it.
