You think you know the story…But do you really? Every other Saturday, Tales presents ancient fairy tales the way they were originally told: orally, and unadulterated. Tales is part of the Parcast Network and is a Cutler Media production.
I absolutely love these stories! I first heard began listening to Parcast Network pieces after hearing about them from another Podcast, “Unexplained”. I began listening to “Mythology” and finally heard about “Tales”. These podcasts have completely taken over my commute to work. I used to listen to music but now I can can’t wait to be in the car to listen to the the next story! I’d love to hear the original story of The Little Mermaid. I’ve heard it’s quite a dark story in its original form.
This is the exact same concept of Myths and Legends podcast that is 5 star rated and years running. This comes off as so as well. There’s nothing original that separates this podcast from Myths and Legends which is more informative and fun. Storytelling leaves much to be desired. Clearly not a good actor(voicing) and definitely do less of that and just tell the story. It feels like the narrator is telling stories to children with the over acting and over dramatization but this is not intended for kids. Mispronunciations are not corrected on later episodes. Not bad overall but Falls short on it’s attempt to duplicate the winning formula in Myths and Legends.
This podcast started out great: new, interesting yet dark details about old stories and has turned into adding excessively gory, unnecessary commentary to old stories in attempt to force the “dark” they promise
