Worthyadvisor ,

This is the best podcast!!

Thank you so much for this, and also opening me up to new authors!! One story I'd love to hear you read is "The Veldt" by Ray Bradbury. I read this in 6th grade in a Reader's Digest fiction reader in school, and it's always stuck in my brain (I'm in my 40s now!). It's kinda creepy, but really awesome! (And please keep doing this podcast!)

Really great!

I love listening to Mr. LeVar Burton reading short Stories to me. His voice is soothing or exciting in all the right places. One hears that he loves what he is doing. And the stories are well selected. Can't wait for the next episode!
