Three Incredible Storytelling Podcasts You Can’t Miss!

In case you are a podcast fan and love to hear crazy stories in real people’s lives, this list will be perfect! So we listed three storytelling podcasts you can’t miss!

Storytelling art is present in our lives since we were young. By definition, it means a person that writes or tells stories. The ones we listed here promise to entertain you and present new perspectives.

Why Podcasts?

Most of us grew up listening to stories from our parents or grandparents. Therefore, stories always find a way to still be present in our lives, from friends, the workplace or family. Now, add incredible podcasts to the list.

According to Orbelo, in January 2020, half of Americans above 12-years-old listen to podcasts. Also, 65% of people prefer to listen on the smartphone. This format is present in different ways as well, it can be on YouTube or other platforms. In 2019, for example, Apple Podcasts were the most popular app to listen to and Spotify the second one.
