Customer Reviews

Quality depends

For the most part, it’s a decent podcast - some of the sound effects are overbearing and massively distracting, but they’re generally not a problem. It’s the episodes where the narrator has fallen in love with his own voice that the problems come - there is ZERO reason an episode should be over half biography and commercials. One minute for commercials should be the MAX and NEVER in the middle of the story. And any more than three-four sentences of NECESSARY background on the author or story. Other than that, shut up and get on with the story!

Update: OMG! STOP with the Jack London! There are MILLIONS of short stories in the public domain!

Show is good!

Excellent reader, but authors very Eurocentric. Also, sound effects are often more distracting than enriching.

History buff

Great podcast for the intellectual listener
