Podcasts and stories on the radio might seem like the domain of grown-ups, but a new podcast from WABE welcomes all ages to listen in for storytime. “The Podcast Where They Read Stories” is streaming now via WABE, NPR and Apple Podcasts, produced by WABE’s VP of audio Scotty Crowe, and an assembly of all-star Atlanta guest voices. “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes spoke with Crowe via Zoom to discuss the new podcast and his passion for storytelling.

“We’re hoping to bring a little bit of entertainment or inspiration to both young people and their families and also to reflect the many different voices, cultures and aspects of our community,” said Crowe.

He continued, “This mode of storytelling gives folks an opportunity to not just tell and perform these stories, but also to give their own perspective and their own lived experience.”
