Favorite podcast ever! Need more episodes and more sherlock!!!!
With the ways these stories are presented in this podcast it’s like you’re reading them for the very first time. It’s so brilliantly done!
I love “The Count of Monte Cristo” but I know that lots of folks can’t “get through the book.” So I would advise to listen to it on this podcast. Any of the books really. The Edgar Allen Poes were delightful - again you may know the stories - but not the way Jason tells them!
ITS BEEN MONTHS!!!!!
