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. 

For all of you who love a good story, we hope you come back again and again, and please share our show with others!

Meanwhile, the king's daughter finds out something very interesting about the lady who has been chosen and will be placed behind the second door.
