Added to my rotation of weekly listens
Heard about this on his Myths and Legends podcast (must listen). A great approach to storytelling! His podcasts take classical folklore, or in this case, literature and make them approachable. Love it! Thanks for everything you do and keep up the great pod-casting!

Another great show from Bardic
Fictional has introduced me to several stories that I know I should have read, but never had. And you know what? I should have read them. Or had Jason read them to me because he probably makes them a lot funnier than they really are.
