Really enjoy listening to your stories .... Loved the leaving speech. I love your views on offices. The one with the conversation with the robot was really good .... The banker was excellent too. In fact I habe listened to then all not skipped any.. Keep them coming
I've enjoyed every one of these short stories. I especially like that James gives a short summary of the inspiration for each story.
Keep going, this is a great podcast :)
Funny, nice to listen to.
Just what I'm looking for, lovely narration, volumes all perfect, nicely done. Clever stories. 😃
