Short story podcasts are difficult to find, I deeply appreciate these clever short stories, and the calming voice of the reader. It is unusual for said podcasts to update so consistently, as stories are difficult to write, but this one does so almost weekly. Lovely imagery and beautifully written.

I may tend toward the dramatic, but these stories have been a lifeline for me after my fiancé passed nearly 2yrs ago, bulldozing my life with his exit. I have laid awake many a sleepless night sobbing into the fur of my sweet, sweet clueless dog. Cursing the heavens for my cruel fate coming to no...Read full review »

Our family shares a love of stories and podcasts, and this one is all of our favourites. Scott is a brilliant writer and orator, and that’s enough to make this an excellent podcast. I want to let you know though, how profoundly touching and beautiful it is to be able to hear stories that so...Read full review »

I’ve listed all along and it seems like you went faster this time ... why? What once cured my anxiety with patients and story, now feels pressured and rushed.

I love folklore and fairy tales, not the scrubbed up versions, but the older, darker versions that reflect the fears and anxieties of times and places. These stories are like the latter and I'm floored that one person created them all. Listen to them - they'll make you feel things.Read full review »

My wish: for more of these stories!!
Magic Wanda via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/08/19
The writer and reader of these stories is incredible. The imagery, sound design and overall production of every episode is incredibly high quality. Each one is a fantastic tale that leaves you thinking.

I love the Podcast. I'm amazed that Scott can consistently write and produce really well writen stories with such rich audio design every week. There are many good long form Podcasts out there but I can't think of anything else that is as compact, tightly edited and so completely...Read full review »
Unwanted Old Truckdriver via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/24/19
The characters resemble the ones we all know and the situations and story telling style similar to those we are familiar with. Except it’s darker and devoid of the neat endings we have come to expect. The stories I have heard so far are so satisfying, I recommend them to anyone who can deal with...Read full review »

I love fairy tales so it’s nice to get a sort of modern twist on the structure while still maintaining an old fashioned fairy tale feel and content. This podcast evolves the fairy tale beyond the stock and tropes and gives us something more substantial to enjoy.
Sanjoie via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/27/18
I listen to these stories all night! I love them soo much 😍😍
#I'll via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 07/31/18
Gods, sir, your “Woodcut” series should be a movie! So original & well-done!
B. Ray Rook via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/15/18
Great concept, love the dark twists these stories take. The storytelling is perfect, and oddly soothing considering the grim turns that pop up.
sha_lah via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/14/18
There’s never a bad episode!? It’s insane how good this is and how compelling every story is.
Riptidetogo12 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/12/18
Well done. I hope there will be a lot more
Fishbonius via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/29/18
I was getting tired of the usual fairy tales and myths and legends podcasts and with a catchy title like this, I decided to try it out. I was pleasantly surprised. Short stories averaging 9 minutes long. Though-provoking. Like Aesop's fables but made by Rod Serling. I've stopped listening...Read full review »

I love this podcast so much I felt compelled to tip! So good, I tell everyone about it.
Krystyna1277 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/13/18
I do NOT listen to fiction podcasts - just not usually my thing. But this is totally different. These fairy tales are so wonderfully constructed; each one is a smart, sly little story that leaves you thinking about them for days! Give it a try, even if you don’t normally think this might be your...Read full review »

Such a great story telling podcast! You do great job telling these stories, excellent voice, and just an all around great job. Looking forward to more !

Very addictive podcast!
Merrill Feiker via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/26/18
It’s late and I had a few more chores to do before I could get to sleep. What better to listen to than fairytales?! I remembered this podcast and was so glad I did. The narrator’s voice is soothing and the stories are short and interesting.
Pizzalli via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/21/18
This is the best podcast I have ever hear! Thank you.

An excellent unsettling podcast. Entertains while making you think and leaving you questioning.
Tampadad66 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/14/18
These little snippets of imagination are entertaining, well told, and sound great. I’d recommend this podcast to anyone who enjoys stories of any kind.
Turn Of Phrases Podcast via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/13/18
What a treasure! Short fairy-tales of another time that still, capture today's imagination. There's no Disney-like everything-works-out-in-the-end plots for the optimistic here, but you will find intriguing, compelling stories, supportive sound-effects and unexpected endings. The...Read full review »

Short and sweet but so delectable!
Bonnie Lee Writing About Crime via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/26/18
I love Scott Thrower's narration style - it feels very classic fairy-tale narrator, with changes in tonality for when character's speak, but not in pitch so that it isn't jarring or comedic. His writing flows well, and I like that they are for the most part shorter, with always the...Read full review »

With each story, you hear your mind is pulled to a world that you have yet to know. With each podcast being 10 minutes long, it is a good chance to take a break and learn something new. And yet each story seems to contain a hint of dark irony.
Anora🎶 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/07/18
I’ve been listening for months now, sporadically saving and binging episodes. The narrative style suits the subject so well and the ambient sounds really set the mood for brilliantly, thought provoking tales. Lovely, bite sized little treats for the ears. Senga Scotland 👍
Sengarella via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/07/18
Scott has a wonderful podcast and the stories are so intriguing and creative and I’m completely captivated. I love the story telling and all his stories. Everyone should give this a go, whether you’re a wanted child or an unwanted child.
Jessica1022(AsianMadness) via Apple Podcasts · Taiwan · 12/24/17
Perfect bedtime stories for adults! Great to fall asleep to. And especially with the podcast timer function. Highly recommend this.
bajajane via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/23/17
Your podcast has changed my commutes from frustrating and boring to thought-provoking and introspective. My favorite part is the subtly of the messages. I like that the “moral of the story” isn’t handed to you on a silver platter, you have to think it through. I have yet to enjoy the social media...Read full review »

The writing and storytelling on this podcast is astonishing. The stories are engaging and really get you thinking. Even though the episodes are short they pack quite a punch and never feel rushed or unfinished.

Each day I pick one podcast to listen to and then I share it to my tens of twitter followers and rate it on iTunes.

This show is fantastic. The stories are so well written and told. I highly recommend this podcast!
Amycapl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/22/17
It doesn't take long to get through an episode, but it leaves you thinking afterwards. Which is a wonderful change of pace. The moral of the story isn't given, but left up to the listener to decide.Read full review »

Podcast is weird and dark and wonderful and stabs you in the heart place. Might induce twisted soul searching. Highly recommend!
yolierolie via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 09/06/17
Scott Thrower does a brilliant job weaving a tapestry as vibrant as Perrault, as dark as the Grimm brothers, and as wondrous as the tomes uncovered by Andrew Lang. With shadowy undertones the world he depicts is as moving as it is captivating. From the first episode I heard, #16, The Drowned Men,...Read full review »

This podcast is utter perfection in how it captures the bittersweetness of hard learned lessons. So poignant and whimsical, so touching and though dark at times, every episode has been thought provoking and utterly delightful. I love this podcast, listened to every episode 3 times or more and...Read full review »

...Give these original short stories, written as fairy tales, a try. A little dark. Thought-provoking. Perfect for 10-minute work breaks. And the episode-ending challenge to find a moral to each story will have you listening again and again.
