Up until very recently, podcasting has had no appeal to me. Sure, I think the idea is cool, but the podcasts I’ve listened to have been boring or trite or so unprofessional that they are barely listenable.

However, I met a very special podcast a few days ago, one that has completely captivated me with its charm, good looks and sweetness. It’s called Stories to Go, and it features published (so far) short stories read outloud — the very occassional mistakes and goofs of the readers are left unedited. The story selection is somewhat eclectic, but it’s interesting and fun. A new story is posted every other day, and I can’t wait for the next one.

(hint: if you run the recordings through Markable, you’ll have a bookmarkable file — because someone will always interrupt you, no matter how short the story is)
