As I already have a podcast produced by the Texas Standard, Stories from Texas, I wanted to launch a new one that would go beyond the limits of where my stories are typically corralled.

In 1982-83 Oscar Wilde toured America and lectured on great design - in clothes, in furniture, in homes and cities.

This short story by Tolstoy is regarded as one of the finest in all of literature. I've always admired it for its O'Henry-like ending. It would have made a fitting story for The Twilight Zone or for today's Black Mirror. I present it here in a shortened 12 minute version. The full story takes about 40 minutes to read. W.F.

He ultimately succeeded in the latter, which made the completion of the canal possible and made the whole world a bit smaller. Because of his success there, he has been called "the Medical …
