What is really neat about Stories Podcast is that they have updated many of the classic stories to get rid of the bad cliches. They don’t have helpless princesses that are waiting for a man to come save them. Their princesses can help themselves, and if they have a damsel in distress, she can figure it out on her own! I particularly love this!
Of course there are a lot of great episodes for boys too. Check out the episode “Max Goodname and the Magic Armor” It was awarded as “New and Noteworthy” by Apple and it is appropriate for the whole family. The story is about a young squire who is trying to become a knight at the King’s tournament. Along the way, he befriends a young wizard and a big-hearted cleric. It’s a lot of fun!
Kids can also listen at home, which is helpful when you are trying to limit screen time. You just might be amazed at how quiet they are without the television on.
Make sure you subscribe so you get new stories automatically, as they are released. If you don’t have a smartphone handy, you can also go to storiespodcast.com and listen there.
I hope you will take a listen to Stories Podcast, and I would love it if you let me know in the comments below, what episode is your child’s favorite!
