    GOD SEES THE TRUTH, BUT WAITS by LEO TOLSTOY

    GOD SEES THE TRUTH, BUT WAITS by LEO TOLSTOY

    In this excellent Tolstoy short story, an innocent man is imprisoned for 26 years for a crime he did not commit. Then he is faced with the man who actually framed him for the murder- who begs for forgiveness.
    This was the story that inspired a book by Stephen King which led to the movie The Shawshank Redemption.

    THE CRUISE OF THE SNARK by JACK LONDON

    THE CRUISE OF THE SNARK by JACK LONDON

    Did you ever have that great urge to get away on what might be the adventure of a lifetime? When an already established and successful Jack London and his wife Charmian bought property in northern California on which they could build a ranch house- they could have settled back and enjoyed the easy life there for the rest of their years. But she was a lover of adventure like he was, and when he asked her if she would like to sail to Hawaii and then on to the rest of the world she said yes without hesitation. They needed to build a boat first, and when that was done- hire a small support crew. When the word went out in the papers that London was about to set out on a world voyage and needed a cook and cabin boy, hundreds of letters arrived applying for the spots. We offer Chapter 1 (Foreword), which explains how and when the idea came about, and Chapter 3-"Adventure"- describing those letters and applications. We will do the full story, some day soon, hopefully, at 1001 Stories For the Road, where we do our long format stories.

Tarzan

I’m new to podcasts I came across 1001 and it’s the best that I’ve found love the old west podcasts. Hands down the best I’ve come across and John has an incredible story voice and keeps you interested keep up the good work.

Chad from Canada

Wookiee1963 ,

Could not make it through one story

Perhaps it was the story chosen: The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle but it was brutal to listen to poorly read dialogue with pronounciations completely out of step with the word. A row (as in an argument) is not pronounced the same was as a row of bricks. I was completely flummoxed by the pronounciation of Tottenham and turned it off. Worse yet was the attempt to read dialogue. Not only stilted but Sherlock Holmes ended up sounding like Jimmy Stewart. Great story choices - a new reader is needed.

Best story podcast

I have listened to a few story podcasts and this one is the best by far! Jon has a voice that pulls you in and immerses you in the stories. Would highly recommend for anyone who needs something to listen to on a road trip or cleaning your house, it keeps your mind occupied and intrigued.
