It's about time!!!!!
I'm a dork---whatever, I love this program. Famous actors reading short stories by famous authors. The storytellers paint portraits with acrylic words penned by the writer. Like sitting in a comfortable chair listening to an eloquent and wise relative recount a tale of happiness, desire, loss of innocence, joy, tragedy and truth. Afterwards, you walk away feeling like you've somehow come to understand your own life and experiences a little better and now you are at peace with yourself. Bring more episodes to podcast...please. We need them!
Wow....I am in love with this program. I like to listen to it before bed...it really is like storytime for adults. Brings me back to my childhood. Very comforting.
I have been chained to my radio at the socially crippling 8PM Saturday night for years because of this incomparable program. Finally, I can resocialize! Thank you!
