PDP #20 - "The Gift of the Magi" by O. Henry

Well I can hardly believe it, I've made it to the 20th podcast of The Public Domain Podcast! We've been through 20 weeks, 9 authors, 1 poem, 1 novel, 18 short stories, and one slight microphone upgrade.

Thank you very much for hanging in with me and I hope you will continue to stay subscribed. I value your time as my listener and everyones' suggestions and feedback on the shows have been a real treat for me.

One of my gifts to you this season is this story which I have always admired, about Christmas gift giving with that O. Henry touch.

This 20th show is 14 minutes, 12 seconds long and 5.1 MB in size.

Manual Download available here.

I have another podcast (and perhaps even a surprise) before Christmas but in case I miss you, Happy Holidays!

PDP #19 - "A Coward" by Guy de Maupassant

This week I'm late in releasing the show, my apologies for any who might have been waiting on it. I have only the holiday busy season to account for it, having gone out of town for Thanksgiving for a week and come back to much work to catch up on for my online stores. I shall still be releasing next week's podcast on Monday so you will get a one two punch of podcasts in quick succession.

This week's tale was suggested by listener, John. It's a thought provoking piece on what makes a coward set in the context of a man about to fight a duel. I quite liked it. EDIT: Caution, this is not regular Christmas fare and may be depressing to some.

It runs 18 minutes and 11 seconds long and is 6.5 MB in file size.
