Wow! So good!
Iâve been listening to Vanessa Richardson for a while. I love her other podcast Cults, which is how I found Tales. Iâve always been fascinated with the original version of stories and tales and this is such a cool way to tell stories. Listening to the Peter Pan stories now and Iâm so happy that in this version they chose to omit the stereotyping of First Nations people. Iâm so happy and proud that the crew at Tales realizes that as we pass stories down, we donât have to perpetuate the negative stereotypes that the original writers created. We can keep things authentic to the original and be respectful of the knowledge we have today. Thanks so much!!
I LOVE the fact that it brings back the classic stories I heard as a kid (some with a dark twist now that Iâm older) and the amazing story telling ability by the podcast hostess! Just brilliant!
I love Tales. Iâm not at all taken aback by the true telling of the Disney classics. And I have to admit, Peter Pan made me cry. I love this podcast.
I work in freight and love listening to these stories! I could listen for eight hours straight, if I could lol!
I seriously love this podcast. Vanessaâs voice is my favorite, and I love just how dark the tales are, donât get me wrong the Disney versions are great, but, as an adult I enjoy dark and twisty. Keep up the good work, Iâm always looking forward to listen to new episodes.
This is a fascinating pocast! I Really look forward to hearing them, love love it!
Terrific, very interesting and well produced podcast. Thanks!
Itâs one of my favorite podcasts!!!!!
And Tales likes Andrew
Started listening to this podcast when it was suggested in my fairy tale class and currently a hardcore fan. Definitely a great podcast to listen
I love all the stories and Vanessa does a great job bringing them to life. Iâm always excited each time a new podcast comes out.
We done and well paced. Enjoying working my way through the stories.
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
