Speculative fiction very well read

Levar has fast become one of my fave podcasts, he reads stories and characters so very beautifully. These are stories that touch me as a listener, but also touch him as the reader. Levar also reflects afterwards upon the impact of each story after reading it, emotive, honest, humble and raw. Bravo.

That deep breath.

Thank you LeVar. Your calm and soothing voice, has eased my (sometimes crippling) anxiety too many times to count now. You have given me a gift. The stories you choose are wonderful, and your personality shining through them as you read, makes me laugh/cry/smile right along side the characters in those stories. I cannot thank you enough.

The best we can do

Your thoughts on the best we are not doing at the end of the story wrenched my heart. I totally agree with you. We are leaving our children a husk of a planet. We must stop being selfish and start to save the world. You help get the message out there. I adore your work, reading and thoughts.
