Good stories, Long Advertising

by pittcricket on Oct 14, 2017
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Stories are great but the advertisements sometimes run for 2-3 mins, which is pretty long when the total story might be 7-10 mins.

Great stories before bedtime!

4.5 minutes of advertisements at the start of a podcast for kids?

Ridiculous that it starts with so much ads. Rejected.

Inspiring Story Telling

First, my daughter ADORES your stories. (She's 4.5yo, and has impeccable taste.) (That was obviously a joke. Although, she is 4.5yo.) I really appreciate your topical stories that open up discussions about current events and social justice, and I recommend those episodes (especially the squirrel story) to all my parent friends.

This is crazy to make nursery rhymes “politically correct” what a bunch of BS. Sorry I suggested my kids listen to these.

GOOD GOD COMMERCIALS!!! They say it's a 12 minute story. ACTUALLY it's 4 minutes of commercial and 8 minutes of a story. Annoying as hell. Had to stop listening.

It’s not completely terrible, but I’m not crazy about it. I don’t like the songs she throws in, or her additions/updates to classic tales. Why is she changing things? My kids seem to like it ok, but I can’t listen to it.

Too much advertising

by Baltimore-Buffalo on Sep 17, 2017
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Good content, but the 3+ minutes of advertising prior to stories beginning is wearing thin. There was a note last fall that this was just a push during he holiday season; it's been disappointing that it hasn't returned to normal. Instead of listening to them, we now just fast forward, which probably isn't what anyone wants out of advertising.

SO MANY ADS, even as a paying "patron"

by My first time on Sep 09, 2017
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

We love the stories and the narration! However, sometimes the ads are longer than the actual stories. We primarily listen to podcasts in the car, and it's not safe to forward through 3-5 minutes of adds before a story. We became a montly patron, but never received an "ad-free feed," as advertised. They also promise to read your kids name on the air if you become a montly donor. After 1.5 years of patronage, it never happened. There were no responses to email or messages through Patreon about the ad-free feed or the name reading. We've moved away from this podcast and on to some other awesome ones without ads (Brains On & the Alien Adventures of Finn Caspian). If Stories Podcast reduced or eliminated ads, I would consider coming back as a patron.

Best bedtime discovery

I have two kids ages 8 & 10 and they love hearing this podcast before going to bed. It reminds me of the magical bedtime stories my papa used to tell me. My boys especially love the ones that have "to be continued" sagas. So cool!

My six-year-old and I have listened to the entire backlog of episodes this summer and love every one. Daniel's writing and Amanda's voices bring so many great stories new and old to life. Thank you for sharing the magic of storytelling with us during our commutes!

Stinky cheese

by From the window to the Waldo on Jul 22, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

My nine-year-old and I found this podcast to be extremely cheesy… not a fan of the ads in the beginning… and my daughter doesn't even think the host even really likes those squeezy drinks they advertised lol we're going back to listening to the myths and legends podcast. This one stinks!

Our favorite kids' podcast!

This is our go-to for long car rides. My kids (4 and 6) both enjoy listening to the stories, and Mom and Dad do, too! Very creative takes on well-known stories, as well as some wonderful original ones. The narrators are great!

I'm so grateful for this podcast! It works magic on my preschool class during meal times and rest time-- it's one of the only ways they calm down, focus, and rest their bodies, because they are so engaged in the great storytelling! The stories are so creative and interesting for me too.

annoying narrator

by Jamminjh on May 23, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

narrator babbles through 5 minutes of commercials before getting to the story. her annoying voice is the opposite thing you want to come your kids down.

Good but too many commercials

by 5t8s8q on May 20, 2017
Rating: ★★★★☆

The stories are great. My kids love them. But there are over 3 minutes of ads before stories that may last only 7-8 mins. If you're going to do that many ads, you need to make longer stories. Ratio is way off. If it wasn't for that, I'd easily give this 5 stars.

Obnoxious, disguised advertising

by maztec on May 02, 2017
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Stories: Great!Advertisements: Horrible! First, advertisements has zero relationship to kids (which is fine). Second, advertisements are sometimes NOT kid appropriate. Third, advertisements are done in nearly the same voice as the story teller. Fourth, there is no warning before/after of the start/stop of an advertisement. Fifth, there is no indication that it is an ad, it is jarring. Sixth, the ads last over a minute at seemingly random intervals (probably half time).Too bad about the ads, I would pay to subscribe to get rid of them, but simply cannot listen with them integrated.

My kids love it

Shameful indoctrination

by Toomasjr on Apr 09, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

"Big Beautiful Walls" is a shameful propaganda piece aimed at current boarder control policy. Don't let your kids be brainwashed. Question for the writers- Do you leave your home doors open and let anyone come in and stay with you?

Wonderful for car rides to school or anywhere.

The best thing about these children's stories and songs are that I enjoy them too. A wide array of fun and interesting stories from short and sweet to a few episodes long. And if the hosts are listening we would love more adventures of the kids in Ireland, they are fun sweet characters and LOVE the Irish accents!

Great for the road!

by Skagway guy on Mar 19, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

So much better than screen time on a road trip. My son gets into the stories. we can listen together, and talk about them afterwards. It allows kids to exercise their imagination, rather than zone out in front of the tube.

No other kid's bed time stories podcast can compare!

My five year old son loves his "Stories" every night, and it has made him excited to tell and share stories from his own imagination. It's also made him much more interested in learning to read. They are incredibly well done and really keep his attention- which is no easy feat! ;)

Both my 5 year old and my 8 year old love it. Amanda is a terrific actor, they take advantage of song with her gorgeous voice, and the content is fresh. It's a must in my house.

Political agenda

by Elemennop on Feb 20, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

My son is rapt with this podcast. The not-so-subtle political agenda is all the more irritating considering my son's attention. Some language is too scary or inappropriate for young children.

Way too fast reading voice

Icarus episode

by Chess fan1543987 on Feb 16, 2017
Rating: ★★★☆☆

This episode belies the grief of a father who experiences the loss of a son. I can only assume someone without kids interpret the material. Where is the Greek drama, sorrow, regret that is captured in our understanding of the brief shuffle on this mortal coil and the irreversibility of our mistakes?
