Premium Audio — Reboot of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
Premium Audio covers the second and third chapters of our
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr.
Hyde this week.
All of those options let you listen anywhere via your "smart" device. The dedicated CraftLit app also allows you to tap a "star" icon next to episode titles so you can download what you want to listen to when in a WiFi environment. That way you don't have to use up your Data Plan by streaming episodes.
***Annotated Audiobooks for Busy Booklovers***
Since 2006 CraftLit has released serialized classic literature weekly—the way Dickens did it—but as an audiobook with audio annotations. Host Heather Ordover gives you some context and juicy tidbits before playing the next chapter of the current book. *** Listeners regularly call in to share their thoughts to be played in the next episode, which keeps the "book club" vibe going. *** The podcast has been in continuous production since 2006. Our current book, "The Count of Monte Cristo" by Alexandre Dumas begins with episode 402.
