First time - Loved it!
Big fan of the storytelling here. I just listened to Bonnie Parker. While I thought I knew almost everything about her, I still learned 2 new facts here. I'm moving on to my next episode now! Keep it up.

Excellent Podcast
This is such a great podcast. Vanessa is a great hostess. She retells fairytales and provide in depth context. It's informational and entertaining. I hope this gem of a podcast gets more popular to where they can update more often.

Great Stories!
I like listening to this at work and while driving. Fairy tales, but not the stories you're familiar with. The old, dark, scary ones. Definitely PG-13, but very well told.
