I love stories and this podcast doesn’t disappoint. The host has wonderful range and beautiful voice. I may have heard some of these stories before but NOT like this way. I learn something new every time!

I love Tales!! Vanessa Richardson is stellar in her readings. I was listening to Beauty and the Beast, totally engrossed and looking forward to the last podcast...but where did it go? Not to be found. What happened? Disappointed.

Fairytales for mature minds

I love learning the real version of stories I was told as a kid. Way better and more intriguing.

The stories are well-written...

...and Vanessa is a great host. The way to make this podcast better would be to have actors read our dialogue. Vanessa ends up using the same voices in multiple stories and, while she does a much better job than I would do with a man’s voice, it comes off sounding cheap occasionally. But the stories are great and interesting to listen to on my commute!

Excellent story telling

Not your Disney Princess fairy tale by any means, the story telling is rich and engaging. I look forward to this podcast every time it is released

New favorite podcast

These wonderfully narrated stories are opening a whole new world of fairytales to me. It's true, they are dark, creepy but also humorous and quirky at times. I loved the Ali Baba 3 part series. This is the one podcast I hold off on listening to until I can sit down with it and give it the full focus it deserves!

Tales is a fun podcast, presenting the tales we all know the way they were told in the past. The only downside is the host doing voices for the characters, it just sounds cheesy.

Love this show! I love all Parcast shows but this is one of my absolute favorites. Fairy tales have always been a favorite of mine and Vanessa reads these so well and they’re very well written. Could listen to these all day long.

I could really see this podcast being adapted for Netflix or Hulu one day. Great to bring the original stories to a new audience. The Rapunzel episode is my favorite.

Ok...? I had NO IDEA! The opposite of Disney needs to make these stories into screenplays and have a great series! I’d support the show 100%! If you use this idea make sure to give me props!!

So good!!

5 minutes of story 30 minutes of Adds

by axncfbvhj on Aug 26, 2018
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

The stories are fine, but they take 30 minutes to tell 5 minutes by including 12 advertisements and promoting other podcasts. Don’t bother with this podcast.

I’m glad someone is telling these stories. You have no idea how annoyed I get when people think that the Disney versions and watered down kids books don’t tell the story correctly and they look at me like I’m some sort of sadistic weirdo. This podcast is great. I love the way the podcasts from Parcast at delivered. Thank you for all your hard work and research.

Best Parcast podcast!

Not your average tale

I have always loved the real stories behind the Disney family friendly versions of fairy tales. Vanessa doesn't hold back on the lovely, dark and twisted tales that created our favorite characters. I was hooked on the very first story of Beauty and the Beast.

I LOVE this podcast! I was at the beauty salon and someone mentioned this to me and I downloaded it and listened to every episode that was available. Fantastic storytelling. And it was very interesting to hear the real versions of the stories.

Very enjoyable

I love almost all of the Parcast podcasts but this is my new favorite one. I listen while working. It is intriguing and easy to follow especially when multitasking.


by CateFL09 on Aug 15, 2018
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Although the narrator states before a couple of the stories this isn’t the tale you’ve heard Disney tell, that’s exactly where the writer goes and you get the verbal equivalent with some of the more adult themes included. A couple of them are so poorly written it physically hurts. They are absolutely wonderful for going to sleep.

Poor voice work

by whyhelloseymore on Aug 14, 2018
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Just was really bothered by the poor voices done by Claire, it would be better if she just read in her normal voice. And also dropped the whole “dark origins” stance. Yes the stories are darker than Disney’s versions but not so dark as it’s warned against. Pg13 at best. Really tried to like it

I remembered these precious times when I was tiny and my dear mother would tell me this special story. So much of it I did not understand. Now I realize how poignant to my Mom. I now know why.

Such a great concept to tell the original and usually dark version of the fairytales that Disney and others have so distorted. It’s like bedtime stories for adults lol. I just wish they came out with new stories more often cause I’m hooked!!!

I usually enjoy Parcast podcasts but I wasn’t sure what to expect from Tales. I started with Alibaba and within the first 5 minutes I was hooked. The tales they have chosen to tell are thoroughly enjoyable and I like that they give cultural/historical information which gives the experience a well rounded adult feel. I also like that they have chosen to tell the original tales and not the ones that have been changed to suit those who can’t handle a little discomfort. The performance is top notch. In the last day Tales has become one of my favorite podcasts.

Love it

by aoxxvii on Jun 23, 2018
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I’ve listened to every episode and they are pretty good. It’s even sometimes humorous when the voice used for the characters sound exactly the same. I was enjoying the one on Momotaro until the end when she said Momotaro even represented the Japanese military in WWII so nonchalantly. Even like that was impressive. The Japanese military pulled a sneak attack on the US resulting in one of the most devastating losses on US soil in history. Not something to be celebrated in my opinion.
