Enjoyable Easy Listen

I commute for work and this show makes the drive much more enjoyable. Voice and style aren’t overdone and the story selection is great; something for everyone!

Why is this guy shouting?

It’s like hearing stories read by Rush Limbaugh.

Fantastic!

This is exactly what I have been looking for, short stories to listen to at work. I enjoy the selection of works as well as the narrator. My only critique is that the added sound effects are distracting and often not mixed well. Just leave them out! But still leaving a 5 star review, thanks!
