Welcome to 1001 Classic Short Stories and Tales Audio Podcast!  This is a hand-picked collection of favorites from writers like Jack London, Louisa May Alcott, Hans Christian Anderson, Edgar Allen Poe, Rudyard Kipling, and many more. I narrate the stories and often add background music and sound effects to bring the stories to life. These are suitable for the entire family, enjoyed by all ages and levels of literary experience, and often make great discussion starters for students who are just getting exposed to literature.

"Aloha Oe" by Jack London is the story of a young girl who has accompanied her father on a senator's junket to Hawaii, befriends a young man with Hawaiian blood,and learns a hard lession about the divisions between race and class.

"The Mexican pt 2" will return as soon as I get over this d....n cold.

This story is living proof that I really do have a heart and I'm doing my best to understand women, although that may take a few more lifetimes.
