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.

Here's the hilarious "The Ransom of Red Chief" by O.Henry- Ever wonder what inspired the movie "Home Alone"?. It was probably this story by O.Henry, in which two bungling small-time crooks decide to kidnap a precocious ten-year-old boy and hold him for ransom, only to find that the boy is far more than they can handle. The story is well-written and will keep you smiling from the start. Enjoy all three of our shows at www.1001storiespodcast.com, or anywhere great podcasts are found. Also- joing our new "closed" group (meaning the conversations are not open to the public) at www.facebook.com/1001Heroes See "Visit Our Group" at upper right just below header picture.
