July 2021 : We are into the second year of the pandemic and continue to shape-shift, as we adapt to various stages of lockdowns. One step forward, many steps back.
The light at the end of the tunnel seems to be just out of reach … and ‘online’ has come to mean ‘lifeline’.
Bedtime stories have now taken on a new meaning ! Escaping into the worlds of our imagination helps, and for children of all ages, StoriesPodcast.com, an audio only format (which is a great alternative to the screen), has energetic storytellers offering – for free – fairy tales, original stories and serialised stories.
It has an extensive archive and is easily accessible on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Spotify. The length of each episode ranges from 15 to 30 minutes.
Listeners are also invited to submit drawings of what the characters in its stories look like, so upload the sketch on Instagram, tag @storiespodcast and join the fun.
