The irascible Badger leads the four friends in an intrepid storming of Toad Hall in a valiant attempt to regain it from the wild Weasels. Kenneth Grahame, today on The Classic Tales Podcast. Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening. Nicholas Nickleby, Volume 2of2 is now available. Discover the end of this epic adventure now at www.thebestaudiobooks.com Earlier today, my wife and I were talking about sleep deprivation, which is something I’m rather familiar with. I have been producing this podcast for 8 years now, and it has taken unbelievable tenacity to put out a quality product every single week, as well as narrate the longer classic novels on top of holding a demanding “regular” job. I was famous for getting 3-4 hours of sleep a night for many days together – for stretches of months. So when you enjoy the free selections from my website, or from the podcast, please know that these offerings are available at a great sacrifice. I didn’t know what I was getting in to when I started 8 years ago. But then I began understanding the impact that The Classic Tales Podcast had in people’s lives, and when the going got tough, I had to keep going. And so now there’s a place where anyone can come and always have a good experience with classic literature.
