We're excited to welcome the DorkTales Story Time Podcast to the Tales2go family!
The Dorktales Storytime Podcast, hosted by Jonathan Cormur, is an entertaining and educational series featuring slightly wacky and very geeky retellings of classic fairy tales and untold stories about the hidden heroes of history—the STEAMers and DREAMers who made history in ways you’d never imagine.
The podcast is produced by an independent team of creators who believe in the power of storytelling. Our mission is to bring people together to laugh, learn, and delight in a tale well-told.
Get started listening!

A retelling of "Little Red Riding Hood" ... La, la, la, la-la! Have you heard the tale of Little Red Riding Hood? You know, the one about the sweet, innocent little girl in the beautiful red cloak who out foxes the big bad wolf? Well forget that one and think ninja granny with a stealthy rescue plan and fierce tranquilizer dart skills.

Come hear our storyteller recount the story of hedgehogs Porky, Percy and Peregrin, and their ultimate triumph over the dastardly wolf using a glue pot, rapier and a wheel barrow. According to Percy, “It’s epic, man!”

Who is nibbling on my house?!” Is the cute little cottage in the woods Hansel and Gretel’s sweet new sanctuary, or are there more sinister plans awaiting them within? Only their wits and cleverness will guide them to a delicious ending.
