The Public Domain Podcast

Great works hand picked for you from the Public Domain and read out loud in a weekly podcast. Authors include Mark Twain, Jules Verne, Edgar Allen Poe and many others. The website also includes links to public domain resources & topics of interest to literary and audiobook fans.

PDP #4 - "The Fatal Cradle" by Wilkie Collins

This short story was written by a contemporary and friend of Charles Dickens. No need to fear, it's not a gory tale despite the title but is really quite humorous.

In order to not break up the drama I've slightly exceeded the 30 minute mark and this podcast is 42 minutes long. Please give it a listen though, if anything I think you'll find amusement in some of the accents I tried to reproduce.

If you'd like to manually download the file it can be found here.

I don't see a link to any of the older audiobooks (prior to PDP15). Can you tell me how to get to them? Thanks, Kelly Mayo

You can see past podcasts by going to the homepage of the blog (sometimes this means clicking on the title words if you are already reading a blog post) and then to the Archives section in the left hand menu. That lists posts by Month and Year.

You can also see a makeshift database I created using here:

The Archives are always up to date, the database sometimes lags behind an episode or two.

Thanks for your interest!
