CraftLit® is a podcast for busy people who love books. Tired of the noise? Sick of the shrill screamers on the Web and on TV? Grab a cuppa and stick a classic book in your ear—for free.
It has been hosted by Heather Ordover since 2006, starting specifically as a way to get classic literature to people who were busy working with their hands. The hour-or-so weekly episodes are Audiobooks with Benefits™—an episodic, chapter-by-chapter audiobook that also includes context and background info that modern readers sometimes need to make a classic book come to life. The ‘cast guides you through each book with a wink and a smile so you are able to get the jokes —not just giggle uncomfortably while fiddling with your drinking glass— at a party.
