Great storytelling from the voice actors. The story is engaging and brings me into the story.
If you are in the mood for some literature, but don't want to actually pick up a book or tablet - they are weighy objects - may I recommend this fantastic podcast. Not only are the selections excellent, but the acting elevates the narrative to another level. A must listen!
Great audio short stories
Reading Out Loud is a podcast of performed short stories. The episodes are quicker and more engaging than an audiobook and often manage to be funny, clever, and sad all at once. I'm hooked!
