Can’t get enough of Fiction

Brought to you by the same power-duo from Myths and Legends, they apply the same treatment to works of fiction, which leads to a charming synopsis of the stories. I know Myths and Legends is more popular, but I might actually love Fictional more! Keep up the good work Jason and Charissa!

Can’t get enough!!

I started listening to Myths and Legends about a year ago and have listened to all of them before starting on this one, and I feel silly for having waited so long. Jason and Carissa are a tour de force of storytelling, the editing and the adapting on this podcast makes is distinct from M&L but with a familiar pace. It’s a great way to get your lit fix or revisit classics with their fun style. Thanks for all you do!
