Today, Anton Chekhov poses the question of our identity. What does our identity consist of? Where does it come from? Is it merely an accumulation of our geography, our upbringing, our religious affiliation, our schooling or lack thereof, and our profession? Or is it something more? Is it important to even have one, and if so, why?

Today’s story is about a person whose identity is wound up in many of these things. I hope you like it. If you’re like me, you’ll want to listen to it again and see what you missed on the first go ‘round.

And now, “The Darling”, by Anton Chekhov

The storm breaks, and Love Among the Chickens concludes. P.G. Wodehouse, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

Emma is nearing its conclusion, and we will be releasing the final installment next month. If you’re coming late to the Emma party, you are in luck. You can become a financial supporter today for 5 dollars per month, and gain access to all four portions of Emma that we’ve released so far- and the next one, of course, going forward. And, you also get a coupon code that is good for 8 dollars off anything in the store.

Based on the results of the survey we sent out a few weeks ago, the next title that we will be producing for The Enchiridion is Victor Hugo’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Did you know that at one time the style of the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris was considered outdated, old fashioned and undesirable? There was actually a large movement to have it torn down which was gaining momentum. One man saved the cathedral from destruction. That man was Victor Hugo. When he heard about this movement to destroy Notre Dame, he decided to stand against it, and wrote the novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Once the book was released, the crusade to destroy this magnificent edifice died flat.

If you become a supporting member today, you’ll instantly receive 4 out of 5 parts of Emma, then next month receive the final part of Emma. In May, you’ll gain access to the episodic release of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and all the while, you’ll get a monthly coupon code for 8 dollars off of our expanding library of titles.

Financial supporters will also be receiving an email with a survey asking what title they would like us to do next in the Enchiridion. I’ll be sending that out tomorrow, so keep an eye on your inboxes and vote on the title you’d like to hear!

Recently I looked over how well these longer titles sell, and it hit me how it really would be impossible to do any of these longer titles outside the podcast if it weren’t for the monthly financial supporters. Sure, I could do them through the podcast, but then The Count of Monte Cristo would have taken all year. Thanks again for being a crucial component in bringing these titles to life.
