    Thanks for clearing up that Poe was NOT a drunk, it just didn’t mesh with the impression I had of him. And it does sound like maybe others were lightweights or developed medical conditions where they couldn’t always drink so well. I have preliminary diabetes, and when I judged it wrong and have too much sugar and then had one weakish beer I was so ill and it came across like I was VERY drunk. So it’s easy to think you’re not gonna have probs cos you haven’t before, and if I hadn’t known what was up there I might have easily repeated that mistake

      That is fascinating and so good to hear from a modern person.
      I know what you mean. I felt bad about Poe getting slandered like that, too.

    I really enjoyed these stories. It’s been a long time since I read any of them, and they were great fun to listen to. Thanks!

    I just found your site. I’ve downloaded every episode I could find, but there are four of them missing–4,5,15 and 16.
    I look forward to listening to them. I work all day in front of the computer, so I’m not happy with the idea of knitting and listening at the computer.

    I look forward to your podcast every week. It’s like being back in English class, which I used to love, even though I ended up becoming a computer programmer (which I also love). Thanks for filling that gap in my life!
