SHORT STORY TODAY - Where we celebrate short stories and the authors who write them.

A weekly podcast hosted by Jon DiSavino. It celebrates the enduring and compact literary form known as - you guessed it - the short story. But more importantly, it gives listeners an opportunity to hear the work of some of the best emerging writers of today. Each episode begins with an interview with the week's guest author, and ends with a professional audiobook production of a story by that author.

Jon DiSavino is an actor and stage director. In the last few years he has begun producing and narrating audiobooks for Audible.com. His most recent release, Doctor Assassin: A Medical Science Thriller  by Mark R. Belsky, was just published in December of 2021. https://www.audible.com/pd/Doctor-Assassin-Audiobook/B09PC2L13F?qid=1641235242&sr=1-2&ref=a_search_c3_lProduct_1_2&pf_rd_p=83218cca-c308-412f-bfcf-90198b687a2f&pf_rd_r=WF488SX9V86TNK7G169J
 
He has recently launched a YouTube channel for actors and directors titled ACT HOW, which will feature videos that illustrate a range of approaches to performing, with an emphasis on the text. Here is a link to the first installment, Highbrow, Lowbrow. https://youtu.be/9ThBpfi3PAc
