Love these stories!

Thanks Levar for turning me on to stories I probably would never have read on my own. Each one is so very well done and captivating with the accompanying music and sound effects. Would love to hear you read Stone Mattress by Margaret Atwood and Half-Truths and Semi-Miracles by Anne Tyler.

Exceptional Podcast

Thank you, Mr. Burton, for sharing your passion for literature with the world. This podcast brings me much joy and the stories are always so vivid. I’ve shed many tears listening to these wonderfully diverse tales. I really appreciate your anecdotes at the end of the podcast. I would recommend this to anyone who loves a great story.
