Entertaining stories

This is a breath of fresh air during these crazy times! It’s entertaining and helps with my boredom during the pandemic and quarantine. Also, it’s something I don’t mind listening too with my child because the langue is G rated! I hope everyone else enjoys it as much as I do!

Amazing

Husband of Samantha045, can confirm was trapped in car and very worried for the first few episodes I (was forced to) listen to. Also can confirm I now willingly listen to this podcast because it is so amusing.
Can recommend to brighten up car rides.

Fun folklore

Can’t recommend highly enough. The modern commentary on some (tbh) really messed up folklore is super fun! Even on the tales I am aware of (so far, just six swans) the take is fresh.
