How can Father Brown discover whether Archibald Ogilvie is missing, hiding, or dead? G.K. Chesterton, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.

Thank you to all of our financial supporters. We couldn’t do this without you. With the pandemic still nipping at our heels, we need your help more than ever. Thank you so much for stepping up, and helping to keep us going strong.

We have new free titles available. Go to, and check out our FREE and our Back to School categories. We’ve had to pare the selection back, (the pandemic is taking its toll on all of us), but hopefully these will help ease the pain we’re all feeling right now.

App users can hear “Love Bade Me Welcome”, by George Herbert. You’ll find it in the special features area of the app.

It’s the time of year for our September Sleuths! During the month of September, we’ll feature a mystery from a different detective. Today G.K. Chesterton’s Father Brown joins us during his trip in Scotland.  

And now, The Honour of Israel Gow, by G.K. Chesterton
