What do cricket, banking, and London all have in common? Why, Psmith, of course! P.G. Wodehouse, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.

Thank you to all of our financial supporters. We couldn’t do this without you. With the pandemic still nipping at our nose, we need your help more than ever. Please go to, and become a financial supporter. And in case you’ve forgotten: a $5 donation gets you an $8 coupon code for any audiobook at the store. Thank you so much for stepping up, and helping to keep us going strong.

And now for something completely different…

What with the pandemic wearing away our souls to threads right now, and with everything else going on, I figured the last thing we needed was more horror stories right now. I mean, we’re living in one, right?

And so, for the month of October, instead of our typical monster/ horror stories, we’re going to be going to London with Mike and Psmith, and hear their adventures.

But, if you absolutely need your Halloween monster fix, (which is totally understandable), I’ll be releasing scary stories through the podcast app. So you can have the best of both worlds. App users can hear “Oh Whistle, and I’ll Come to You, My Lad”, by M.R. James this week.

You can access the special features by playing this week’s episode, and finding that just under the artwork, there is a gray band. In the gray band on the left is an icon with a box that looks like a present. Tap it, and you should get an option to play the special features. There are different special features each week, so you have to play each episode to get the matching specially featured story.

And now, Psmith in the City, Part 1 of 6 by P.G. Wodehouse.
