Best Storytelling Podcasts We Could Find
Most people grew up listening to stories that have been shared and passed on from generation to next as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation and instilling moral values. The podcasts listed in the catalog cover stories from every genre, real and sci-fi, for all ages, which be followed while you commute, walk in the park, climb a mountain, even without Internet connection. Some of the podcasts analyse popular myths and their cultural influence and origin. Other podcasts delve into the paranormal world, attempting to explore the unexplained as well as discussing about UFO encounters. Furthermore, you can find many audio books, bed-time stories for children, ranging from retelling of fairy tales to telling classic stories. Some hosts invite people from all walks of life to share their true, life stories. Others analyse the latest news in literature, from every genre, often accompanied by established and emerging authors.
