My nightly go to stories.

I routinely listen to these short stories over and over again. I am briefly transported away to distant Fairytale Lands. At times, a form of therapy during these troubled days, circa 2020. Thank you Scott. Sincerely, Mitch in Los Angeles.

Love it

Short story podcasts are difficult to find, I deeply appreciate these clever short stories, and the calming voice of the reader. It is unusual for said podcasts to update so consistently, as stories are difficult to write, but this one does so almost weekly. Lovely imagery and beautifully written.
