Wild Pick

I liked Grant Lawrence’s story pick he is reading to us. I think some people are just a bit too picky. What they need to do is sit down and read a chapter of a book out loud, record it, and play it back. See how their intonations sound to them. It’s not easy to be perfect. Gosh knows I’ve tried and given up.

Keep going Grant , I really want to hear more. So glad that this is being podcast. That is a tremendous service.

Hermit of desolation sound

I love this series and all you shows. Nice time listening while I do my early morning walk. Thank you
I’m looking for the rest of the series shows after #5

another voice please ,

Hermit of Desolation Sound

Sadly I feel the same as a previous comment in that I just can’t enjoy Grant Lawrence’s affected voice when he reads this story in the way he stresses and elongates words.
