I can't wait for more!

I feel like I'm now getting out of the rock by listening to Levar Burton's podcast since I knew of Levar Burton but haven't watch a lot of Levar Burton. I love the stories that he finds and reads. I would love to hear him read something by Peter S. Beagle (The Last Unicorn)

Sappy review warning

I’ve only listened to two episodes so far. I’ve teared up (happy tears!) both times. I’m hooked! Between Reading Rainbow and Star Trek: TNG, I have been a fan on LeVar Burton for decades. I love short stories and Mr. Burton’s choices just reinforce my love for this story format. The perspective he brings to the stories he reads is invaluable. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
