Great stories old and new

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

by Monstercraftsman on Feb 19, 2017

Tried to listen with my kids. Storyteller reads way too fast for children to follow along. Listen for yourself.

Very well written and very well performed. We've listened to each episode at least 3 or 4 times. We want more!

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?

Whimsical Fun

Our whole family enjoys Stories Podcast. It is part of our daily bedtime routine, and we often listen on road trips as well. There is always great rejoicing when a new episode is released! These stories have inspired my children's play, have encouraged them to research other cultures, and given us hours of entertainment. We especially love the songs! The adaptations of old favorites are clever fresh, and the original stories are full of rich characters and adventure. We recommend it to others often!

The kiddos I nanny love to listen to your episodes on our car rides, but the Dog King episode was a *serious* hit and had all of them annnnd myself in stitches!! Huge fans of Dog King and hoping for more episodes of our flea-filled friend in the future!!💖Thanks for all your hard work putting together these excellently written stories that are so fun and engaging for the kids :)

This is by far the best kids podcast.

My kids (8yr old boy and 4 yr old girl) love this podcast. They insist on listening to them anytime we're in the car. My older one loves stories like Max Goodname, Firefly Reborn and Seal Skin Girl. And my younger one loves all the stories, especially the ones with songs. She even sings the songs to herself while she's in her room. I've tried lots of other story podcasts and this one is, by far, the best one I've found.

Love these stories

Love it! Clever stories - original or unusual takes on old favorites. My 6 year old loves listening to these at bed time (now for a year). There's a lot of variety and often a hook for parents too. Thanks to Amanda Weldone for the variety of voices 😻💎😹 and always making it interesting. Love that I can choose a 5 min or 25 min story. Some are better for bedtime and others more exciting and but really enjoying these podcasts!!

I am 10 years old and I LOVE Stories Podcast!! It is an awesome experience for me and my sister. There is no bad language and it is not too scary. It has fun songs and stories. We like every story we hear. My parents enjoy listening with us. We especially enjoy listening on long car rides. My favorite story is The Brilliant Firefly: Reborn. I highly suggest this for you and your kids.

Quality Children's Podcast

by Daughters Favorite on Dec 29, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

We stumbled upon listening to kid podcasts in the car when I couldn't stand another kid music CD and I didn't want my 3yo to listen to npr anymore during this election season. Storie's Podcast is BY FAR the best out there. I only wish there were more episodes, and more podcasts like this. I love the songs that Amanda sings, and Daniel is a great writer together the produce a quality program. While some of the stories are above my 3yo head, (and my 1yo) they are all appropriate and fun and I really love listening to them too! Proof of Mermaids, Seal Skin Girl, and Max Goodname- Silent Knight are among MY favorites. My girl likes the Amazing Grace series, Dinasour Christmas, and Three Pigs. Thank you for your contribution to my childs love of stories.

We download several kids podcasts for a long road trip and this one was by far the favorite. Our kids (4 and 6) asked to have several of the episodes played multiple times, like Dinosaur Christmas, Gingerbread Man, and The Milkmaid's Song.

Gingerbread Man!

by Reluctant_apper on Dec 20, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

Stories is a great way to introduce kids to the wonderful world of podcasts! My 3 year old became immediately obsessed upon hearing the Gingerbread Man, and requests to listen all the time - while eating, before sleeping, in the car, and during play. My son has begun to quote them word-for-word. This sounds like it would be annoying, but I’m glad that I’ve found a way for him to tune into listening so early in life.

Engaging, Wonderful Storytelling

by gotomedia on Dec 17, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

Our daughters are 7 and 9 and every time we get in the car they yell "play the podcast!" They think Stories Podcast is the best. Amanda Weldon especially has an amazing ability to translate the stories written by Daniel Hines (some adapted from classics, most original) into voice and song that engage 100%. From Max Goodname to The Brilliant Firefly -- we hope they continue for years to come. My oldest daughter woke up this morning and said, "I cannot wait for next week!" And I said, "because it is Christmas?" And she said, "no, because the next episode of Brilliant Firefly is coming out!" :-)Thanks Daniel and Amanda and Kelsey who do such a wonderful, quality job.
