B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories.

Herman Melville (1819-1891) was an American author whose books were based on his own experiences as a sailor. Today Herman Melville is world famous for his novel "Moby Dick" but in his lifetime, this novel was ill received and quickly forgotten. Not until many years after Herman Melville's death did "Moby Dick" get rediscovered become what is today considered one of the greatest classics in American literature. Melville, along with authors such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau and Walt Whitman, was part of the American Renaissance – a literary movement that aimed to provide literature for the American democracy.
