Excellent podcast, i recommend to anyone who likes a short story and so well read.

An absolute gem!

I really cannot recommend this podcast enough, it really is unmissable. The business for audiobooks these days is expanding rapidly, and I can see why; I love listening to audiobooks on long walks because unlike 3 minute songs they have continuity and can keep my attention for so long I can forget how long I've been walking for. I was intruiged when I saw this podcast, but I have to admit the first minute or so did not impress me as it was mainly an advert for a coffee merchant and an explaination of the contents of the podcast, and frankly I thought if it was just going to be full of adverts I wasn't going to bother with it. I'm so glad I stuck through though; the first podcast I listened to was the Fiction into Film episode, and the two stories in it were so enchanting and really did make me laugh at times. The actors who read the stories have obviously rehearsed the pieces and they sound more like extended monologues than stories, there is a good deal of variation between the stories in the different podcasts which keep them fresh and the introducer spends some time discussing the pieces at the end of the readings which again I thought I wouldn't like but was just as enjoyable as the stories and incredibly revealing. It really is a wonderful podcast, I don't know how I could recommend it more!
