The Classic Tales Merchandise store: 

Today’s story is by P.G. Wodehouse, and begins the novel Leave it to Psmith (the ‘P’ is silent): part 2 of the Blandings Castle series. The first in the series was Something New, where we met Lord Emsworth, Freddy Threepwood, Beach, Baxter and many others. I’ve tried to keep the character voices consistent with Something New, which we did back in 2014.

A note on the title: Wodehouse has placed the letter “P” in front of the name “Smith”, for reasons which will be explained later on. In the audiobook format, you don’t see that, and miss out on the joke.

And so, rather than try to enunciate “Psmith”, for the audiobook version, I’ll add the term: “The ‘P’ is silent” when it seems appropriate. This is simply to try to convey in audio form, the joke that those who are reading visually get to enjoy.

And now, Leave it to Psmith, part 1 of 10, by P.G. Wodehouse.
