Locked in

I started listening to these and have been hooked. Currently in 2016 stories and plan to listen to each one. Thank you for this podcast. So easy to follow and delivery is spot on.

A fantastic storyteller!

Jason brings the stories to life, adding humor where appropriate but not making serious stories silly. This (and Fictional) are the only requested podcasts by my wife and kids, and we look forward to each new episode.

For this podcast, we really like the wide range of sources of these stories; it’s not just Grimm fairy tales. It’s a treat to hear a new myth or legend.

Interesting and funny

I really enjoy these low-key, tongue-in-cheek retellings of myths and fairy tales. This podcaster is a great story-teller. Lots of fun.
