It’s tough to sell something that is expensive to produce, but available for free. Over the years, I’ve tried a lot of things, and I’ve tried to keep the podcast free from gratuitous advertisements. I know it might work with other shows, but I’ve always shied away from putting ads in the middle of the episode, or pelting you with a ton of ads at the beginning or end. Once the story starts, I want to keep you in the moment. This is the only way we raise funds to keep the show rolling. And you get so much in return. So, if you enjoy the podcast, please step up and support it. It’s a great feeling and it’s a terrific value. Thank you for your support.
From The Pink Panther movies to Ocean’s 8, we love our super smart burglars. Maurice Leblanc pioneered this concept when he created Arséne Lupin, Gentleman Burglar. While he’s sharp enough to run circles around the greatest detectives,(including Sherlock Holmes) there’s no malice in his mischief. And he often champions the cause of those who have no one to advocate for them, as we see in today’s story.
And now, The Sign of the Shadow, by Maurice LeBlanc.
