The steadfast and stolid Water Rat becomes bewitched by a wandering wayfarer, and may decide to leave the riverside all together. Also, the ineffable Toad continues his adventures while on the lam. Kenneth Grahame, today on The Classic Tales Podcast. Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening. Nicholas Nickleby, Volume 2of2 is nearly finished. At last count, I’ve created around 90 voices for Nicholas Nickleby, all told. And what an adventure it is. Keep an eye open for an email going out this week, announcing the release of the powerful conclusion of Nicholas Nickleby. Volume 2 will be over 17 hours long! Here’s a fun idea – how would your business or corporation like to sponsor an audiobook! This is how Plutarch’s Lives and Three Men in a Boat came to be produced. If you have a book that you’d love to have me narrate, send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For a discounted rate, I’ll produce the public domain book you suggest, and add a producer credit to your company in the credits! If you’d like, I can also create a podcast of the book, so that you can send it out to your clients, students, support group or what have you. Who knows? iTunes might pick it up and feature it! It’s happened before…(you can’t see, but I’m winking). Send me an email, and I’ll send you the details – that email again: email@example.com. Finally, App users can listen to an interview I did for the Beware of Monsters Podcast. Enjoy! And now, The Wind in the Willows, Part 5of7, by Kenneth Grahame.
