The Classic Tales App is a great little tool for listening to the podcast. You can easily follow the links in the show notes, and you can see the episode specific artwork that I create for every title. You can also hear the occasional special feature. This app doesn’t interact with the website, though. Just a fair warning. I’ve looked into it, and to create such an app is cost prohibitive at this point. But if you want a quick place to jump and get your classic tales fix, the Classic Tales App is a great place to go.

And now, The Willows, part 2 of 2, by Algernon Blackwood.
