My only criticism is that I wish this podcast was weekly! I love these stories!
I love stories and this podcast doesnât 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.
Love love ððThank you ð
I have enjoyed listening to the true story of each character and canât wait to hear more like the little mermaid.
I absolutely love this podcast. I find myself looking forward to the newest episode. The stories are amazing and the host makes this podcast wonderful to listen to. Great job, please continue.
I love learning the real version of stories I was told as a kid. Way better and more intriguing.
...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 manâs voice, it comes off sounding cheap occasionally. But the stories are great and interesting to listen to on my commute!
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
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.
I binge listened my way through every episode! Well put together and storytelling format is great. Can't wait for more!!!!
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 theyâre very well written. Could listen to these all day long.
Love it. Very entertaining. Fun to listen to.
I really like this podcast!
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! Iâd support the show 100%! If you use this idea make sure to give me props!!
Love the production on this!! Stories are good.
The stories are fine, but they take 30 minutes to tell 5 minutes by including 12 advertisements and promoting other podcasts. Donât bother with this podcast.
Iâm 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 donât tell the story correctly and they look at me like Iâm 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.
Love love love! Please consider airing weekly!
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.
Awesome podcast! Not for children though.
I just discovered this podcast, via Lavar Burton reads, which I also love. Now I go to bed each night, while someone reads me a bedtime story. I am young again! â¤ï¸
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.
Although the narrator states before a couple of the stories this isnât the tale youâve heard Disney tell, thatâs 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.
I love this podcast! I canât wait for next weeks episode.
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 âdark originsâ stance. Yes the stories are darker than Disneyâs versions but not so dark as itâs warned against. Pg13 at best. Really tried to like it
I love everything about this podcast! I especially like learning the dark pasts of these stories!
I love this & hearing where the stories are actually from!!
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.
I love Parcast, and Vanessa so much. This one is my favorite!! (among many I subscribe to)
This is a great story telling podcast. Telling the original dark versions of these tales is exciting. The host is great and has a wonderful coice
I love hearing fairy tales the way that they were meant to be told!
Such a great concept to tell the original and usually dark version of the fairytales that Disney and others have so distorted. Itâs like bedtime stories for adults lol. I just wish they came out with new stories more often cause Iâm hooked!!!
Love the real storyâs of the fairytale that I grew up with I want more of them lol and every week too
My favorite podcast right now! I love the stories and Vanessa is such a great story teller!
I usually enjoy Parcast podcasts but I wasnât 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 canât handle a little discomfort. The performance is top notch. In the last day Tales has become one of my favorite podcasts.
I love this podcast. The speaker Vanessa's voice is so soothing. She does great character voices as well. When I listen to this podcast I lose track of time in the amazing stories. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
I love hearing how the fairytales we grew up with came to be! Please make more episodes!
Exactly what I was looking for in a podcast
Wonderfully done! I recommend to anyone who has an ear for nostalgia, or, perhaps even an appealing time warp back into the history pages.
Love it! Vanessa's voice is perfect for this.
Iâve listened to every episode and they are pretty good. Itâs 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.
This is right up my alley. I love the OG fairytales & so glad someone has turned this into a podcast. Looking forward to these.
Iâve searched for so long to find the original fairy tales and this is perfect. Tales as they were meant to be told. Thank you!
I LOVE this podcast. Fairy tales and stories from other cultures and times are so fascinating! The only thing that could be better is if a new episode was released weekly!
I really enjoy listening to these timeless tales!
The tone, context, and soundtracks are immaculate and contribute beautfully to the story-telling.
