Storynory

Hosted ByBertie

Storynory brings you an audio story every week. Each one is beautifully read by Natasha and friends.

Storynory has been giving the world free audio stories since 2005. The show’s most faithful fans grew up listening to the podcasting pioneer and still tune in. Regular listeners, mostly in the 6 to 10 age range, are familiar with Storynory’s cast of characters, Astropup, Katie the Witch, Uncle Jeff, and Lapis the Ancient Egyptian Cat. Feedback suggests that the audience often listens as a family, with parents and teachers as captivated as the children.

The original stories are interspersed with myths and unusual fairy tales adapted from around the world. All are beautifully read by classically trained actors, Richard Scott, Natasha Lewis, and Elizabeth Donnelly. Much of the material is written by Storynory’s founder, Hugh Fraser (pen name Bertie) whose children’s novel, Dotty’s First Year at as a Human, will be published by Walker Books next year. Storynory also features original music, sound effects, and poems.

The archive of stories features 750 audio recordings and continues to grow with regular additions. It has found a global audience, with listeners in the UK, USA, Asia, and Australia. Its stories have been licensed by Google for use on Google Home, as well as by local radio stations, app developers and toy manufacturers around the world. Its commercial partners have included Audible, RxBar and Wicked Uncle.
