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.
For years, I thought that Jack London was a one trick pony. Tell me again about the Klondike. I can’t get enough of sled dogs – how did you know? But he was so much more. Apparently, he wrote 1000 words every day. And some of it was simply amazing. We’ve discovered his amazing power in the mystery genre with The Leopard Man’s Story. He also wrote amazing science fiction, horror, and psychological fiction. Today, he explores the amazing powers of the mind in our first story, When the World Was Young. Then he gives us a tour-de-force of psychological horror with the story Moon-Face.
And now, When the World Was Young and Moon-Face, by Jack London.
