Giving new meaning to "Talk is Cheap", the CAGcast is the official Podcast of the video game shopping community, CheapAssGamer.com.

Here is 'Robinson Crusoe' by Daniel Defoe in its entirety as a weekly podcast. Widely regarded as marking the start of the english novel, this book is a grand and moving adventure.

You can also listen to a pirate novel at the 'Pirate Jack' podcast.
