Famous bombastic borrower Stanley Featherstonehough Ukridge is convinced that his complete ignorance of farming gives him a particular advantage in the subject. And he persuades his wife and his mild-mannered chum to start a chicken farm with him. P.G. Wodehouse, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.
Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.
This episode of The Classic Tales Podcast is made possible by our listeners who have gone to www.thebestaudiobooks.com and become financial supporters. We couldn’t do this without you.
So, I had a listener send me an email, and he was like, “Ok, let me get this strait – for 5 dollars a month, I can get Emma, like all the parts, and a credit for $8 off anything in the store? How long do the credits last?” I could see that he was maybe looking for a “catch” – smart guy! I replied and said that the credit is issued as a monthly coupon code, and it is good for a year from the time of its release. And also that, yes, you can have all of Emma and an 8 dollar code for 5 dollars a month. He’s now a financial supporter. Thanks, Will!
Financially supporting the podcast not only helps us keep the podcast up and running, it also helps to grease the Harrison Family’s wheels. I remember when I was an art student, and I learned about what freelancing was. My initial reaction was, “That’s the dumbest thing ever! Who would do that?” Well, 22 years later I still do it. And the trickiest part of working as a freelancer is keeping a steady stream of funds. See, even if I do the work, sometimes the mail breaks down, or hurricanes hit, or things get miscommunicated. It’s just the nature of the freelancing beast. And so having a monthly resource I can lean on from time to time really helps when the road gets bumpy. And sometimes things can get pretty bumpy. Thank you so much.

All the responses come to me, and I’ll get you squared away in no time. Again, thank you so much.
Today’s story is the first part of a new P.G. Wodehouse series! I’ve been kicking this title around in my head for a while now. When I listened to an audio version of it, I thought, “You know, this could be really funny with a little twist.” Also, a satirical book featuring a bombastic blowhard who thinks that his absolute lack of experience makes him uniquely qualified…. well let’s just say I thought this was a strangely timely tale. I hope you like it.
