Classic lit with a modern tone, every other week.
From the creators of Myths and Legends, comes an altogether same-but-different podcast set in the world of classic lit. These are the stories of Dracula, The Time Machine, The Three Musketeers. They're stories written by Jane Austen, Shakespeare, and H.P. Lovecraft, but with a casual, modern tone.

Always my first choice!
This podcast is awesome! I love it as much as Myths and Legends. Really enjoy the humor. I listen to episodes as I walk my dog and always are thoroughly entertained. One fun story to do would be the story of Dorian Grey! Hope you add more episodes soon!
I love this podcast
I love this podcast but not as much as myths and legends. And can you upload more? It’s been like 6 months.
Just this morning, I was reading the Cask of Amontillado, then I thought about listening to the Red Death story, and was pleasantly surprised to hear the second story. Great podcast, but I enjoy Myths and Legends a bit more.
