Good, but fast

The tales a well told, but it’s like they are being said at 1.25 speed. The only part of the show that goes at pace with such stories is the into by Anansi. After that, we’re off to the races, and the Hare beats the Tortise. There is little tome for the significance to sink in. If these tales were told at a slower pace, as they were intended, then the tales would be savored and the lessons would hit home.

Great stories

Cleverly done, not your average audio drama.

Fantastic Stories

Love the acting and the storytelling. I hadn't heard this story before and yes, love it. Then again I'm the producer, so... Seriously though, you'll love it. Check back for more!
