Our thanks to Josephine for saying some very nice things about Bertie and Natasha in Episode 21 of Podfinder UK, which showcases the Best of British podcasts. There are some super 3D graphics to illustrate a clip from Storynory, and Jo tells you about some other super story-telling podcasts too.
We are seeing more an more Russian visitors to Storynory (hope you enjoy our skazki). For those who are following Natasha reading Alice in Wonderland, we thought you might like this English and Russian side by side translation.
I succumbed to Potter fever and hopped along to the cinema to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon watching the latest Harry Flick, The Order of the Phoenix. What I like about HP’s magic is that it is so psychological. In order to scare off demons, you have to conjure up your happiest moment in […]
