Pretty good😄

I like your stories a lot. I listen to them before I go to sleep. The only problem I have with them is that the endings need work. I think there could be a lot more to the endings then, “and the main character lived happily ever after or, “and the evil character died. But other then that great job. 😜😝😛🥳

miss the old stories

I’ve been a long time listener of family folktales! I haven’t heard all the stories many times! I can’t wait for the current series of stories to be over so we can hear stories from other books. It would be great to sprinkle some in between the current episodes as well.

Very lovely stories

I really like your stories I think you’re doing great at them I noticed that some people think they should have different endings like the bad character all the ways dies and the good character always lives happily ever after but I think like for the little mermaid it was great because the little mermaid she loves him so much that she couldn’t get him she couldn’t get herself to kill him I thought that was so sweet I also love that you’re doing classic tales it’s just so nice overall great podcast🍜🍼I just put those there for fun.
