Best stories ever!

Love this podcast! Julie has a great voice that brings the stories to life. Stories you may not have ever heard of until now, and how could you have been walking the planet not knowing about them? She does a great intro and a few follow up comments “on the other side” that makes you feel like you’ve been invited right into her living room. I really loved Mrs. Appleyard and People of the Mist. Both require some investment of your time but well worth it. Thanks for this great podcast, it really had something for everyone. Cheers to you Julie. Let’s grab that coffee one day soon.

Too fast

These readings are unbearable for their speed. I couldn’t follow one sentence. For me, worthless.

Love this podcast

Entertaining podcast and if you go to the website, there is a long list of previous books that you can download. Julie's voice is easy to listen to and the books are fun.
