Welcome to the Robert Ingersoll Podcast. This is a series of readings from the speeches and writings of Robert Green Ingersoll, one of the most famous and sought-after orators of 19th century America. He was a champion of free thinking, liberty, and women's rights; a fierce opponent of slavery, and a very eloquent speaker regarding topics of religion, the bible, and belief in the supernatural, among other things. I hope you will enjoy the readings. I welcome your feedback and suggestions for improvements.

Thank you Ron. The positive review on iTunes and your post are the only feedback I have received so far. I am learning as I go. I have noticed that the quality of my voice is inconsistent; I am trying to learn how to correct it. I only recently learned of the existence of Robert Ingersoll and was amazed at his eloquence, scholarship, pursuasive abilities, and the sheer volume of his work.
I enjoy listening to audiobooks on my commute, so I thought this would be a good way to spread knowledge of Ingersoll.

I'm listening to "Myth and Miracle" right now, it sounds great. Thank you very much. I listen to podcasts all night at work, and I'll definitely be adding this one to my rotation.

I hope you don't mind, I added a link here from the Wikipedia page for Robert G Ingersoll.

Just wanted to let you know that I'm enjoying the Ingersoll podcatsts. These are perfect for the commute to work -- I've been meaning to read more Ingersoll for years and just haven't had time.

As far as the voice quality being inconsistent -- it really isn't too distracting, but at first I was wondering if two different people were doing the readings. It sounds more like a recording issue than variations in your voice, though.

What an excellent project! Your recordings are very clear and the subject matter is exactly what we need to hear more of in today's reactionary political environment.

Thank you. Excellent production - and for me a first meeting with the genius of ingersoll - for which I will remain truly grateful.
