I started this project when I couldn't find a podcast featuring various works in a range of genres by authors both known and unknown. I have always enjoyed telling stories, reading out loud to my family and friends, and I have never been able to satiate my hunger for new material to read. I also hope that this project can help promote the works of some of the lesser-known authors and get their works out to people who wouldn't have otherwise found them.
