My World of Parkinsonian Delights


A Little Taste of My NEXT Podiobook…

We’re about 2/3 of the way through my rendition of “No Doorway Wide Enough” for Podiobooks.  But I’m already hard at work on my next audiobook presentation.

Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce you to the first episode of “Undercover Trucker: How I Saved America by Truckin’ Towels for the Taliban.”



Another Nice Review of the Podiobook

Yet another nice review of my Podiobooks version of “No Doorway Wide Enough.”

Let me start off by saying that I heartily recommend this podiobook. Admittedly, a life-altering disease like Parkinson’s is not something that one would envision as light and cheerful subject matter for a podcast book, and it was thus with some trepidation that I started listening to the first episode of “No Doorway Wide Enough”. Imagine my surprise at finding myself not only intrigued by, but drawn ever more strongly into, the thread of the ongoing tale of this man’s personal struggle. Even while painting a vivid picture of the advance of Parkinson’s Disease and its effect on his life and future, Bill Schmalfeldt succeeds in keeping the subject light, cheerful, informational, humorous, even inspirational. Needless to say, I very much respect Mr. Schmalfeldt for his resolve and inner strength, not only for bearing up under what must feel like a personal ‘Calvary’, but for caring enough to share this with the world. Give it a listen.

Thank you.  And yes, please, give it a listen!

The First Review of My Podiobook

I got a review of my Podiobook!  This was posted by a gent (I assume) calling himself “Zeus.”

This is a must-have podiobook. A brilliantly irreverent, and sometimes laugh-out-loud tale (about a serious subject) told by one of the most charming and amusing authors to hit this site. Plus, he’s got great pipes and a love for old time radio schtick. What’s not to like? I look forward to further episodes of this fascinating and well-told story.

Thank you, Zeus?  I’ll check out your web page.  I have some questions about you and Aphrodite.
