Reading Flash back

Listen to this podcast if you love stories and an amazing vocal talent that brings you to a place of childhood comfort. I love love love this podcast! It is a flash back to watching a listening to Reading Rainbow. LeVar’s thoughts after each story are wonderful. The Merchant and the Alchemist Gate was one of the tops for me. 💚💚
