      Thanks Dane!

  • Johanna Miklos

    Lovely contrast – white, light, hope – but the waiting will not end until the last member of a family/chain of love has arrived in the Waiting Room. Great idea to do an audio and the reader’s voice and music are wonderful reminders of how super it was when there were stories on the radio.

    • Martin Hooijmans

      It’s the main reason for setting up a feature like this, Johanna. Thank you for listening!

    An excellent first choice! The reading and score are seamless. The story now has me trapped in the Shackcast waiting room.
