New International Podcast

A few weeks ago a group of us got together with the intention of creating a storytelling podcast, which contained a wide range of voices, stories and ideas from all over the planet. Generally those who are appearing on it are teachers (lucky coincidence for now) so there is a bit of teacher discussion, but we hope the stories can be enjoyed by anyone anywhere.

Give it a listen, we’d love a bit of feedback. We’re releasing an episode once a fortnight for now and welcome anyone online who wants to tell a tale.

Storytelling for Peace A Cornucopia Of Tales and Tellers

'Storytelling is an act of peace' – Christmas is a wonderful moment to stop and reflect on the importance of peace and on how much we need peace in this world.  In this episode, Alan and Simona tell us about the World Storytelling Cafe event 'Storytelling for Peace' held on the 24th of December, and tell some of the stories they shared during the event. If you couldn't attend the storytelling marathon and want to catch up, or if you want to watch it again, you can find it here – A Cornucopia of Tales and Tellers is a passion project brought to you by English teachers Alan and Simona, who want to create a compilation – or cornucopia if you will – of stories from all around the world and by as many tellers from around the world as possible.  So grab a cup of tea, chai, water or uisce beatha, relax and enjoy hearing tales that have been handed down generations, or even ones that were dreamt up yesterday! Music by Purple Planet. Find us on Facebook and Twitter. If you like what you hear, you can Buy Us A Coffee to help fund future episodes and the hosting of our podcasts.
