Great again

Really love your voice and story telling of the classics. Reminds me of my grandmother reading her and grandpas childhood books to me. All 1st and 2nd additions of Tarzan , Mark Twain’s and of others from 1890’s and 1900. Most of them hand me downs from older brothers and sisters. Remember grandma skipping over parts of Tarzan. She said they where to racy for young Christian ears . Never could figure out what parts they were. Haha. Wish I had those books now. My cousin got them when grandma passed away. Thank you for the memories you brought back to me. Of the good old days of childhood

Wonderful way to pass time

Jon, since I first heard your work on 1001 Histories etc l found it to be entertaining, interesting, and spooky at times (Skinwalker Ranch).

There is something about your voice and style that is comforting. I guess it’s the equivalent of a comfortable leather chair with excellent light for reading! The sort of thing one looks forward to.

I am very glad to have found your short stories podcast, exhibiting those same strengths. I loved HH Monroe as a young reader so I am very happy to listen to many of his stories which are new to me.

Listened to your frustration re nasty comments at the conclusion of a Conrad story. So damnation to the trolls out there and please keep giving us your best. Trolls are a disgraceful phenomenon. They are, of course, very sick, angry and mentally ill to various degrees.

It still must be disturbing to read what they write after the work you put in. You don’t deserve it! Definitely not. Luckily there is absolutely no meaning to what they write because all they wish to do is get reaction and anger coming back at them, thus feeding their mania, dark depression, psychosis etc. Sad really as long as you don’t absorb the false criticism.

I’ll send another tip top review in the near future and try not to be so wordy.
