Merlin’s Betrayal - Wonderful!

Jon - I just finished listening to the first installment of the Betrayal of Merlin - great topic and expertly read! I felt like I was back in my early grade school days with my favorite teacher reading a fascinating book to the class! Looking forward to the next installment as promised!

catincord ,

excellent storytelling

John Hagedorn is a wonderful and sincere narrator, and the short stories he selects are heartwarming. I look forward to listening each week and am never disappointed! Thanks!

LYS Charles ,

Edifying and thoughtfully selected!

As a busy mom who doesn’t have as much time to read as I would like, this podcast is a God-send! I often listen with my young children (4, 6, 8) who also enjoy!
