Great stories, well told

Yarn story podcast nails what makes podcasts great. It features true(ish) short stories and essays that inform and entertain. The narration style is intimate and personal. Original music and voice actors pop in and out, which adds a nice texture. A lot of the stories focus on interesting characters the narrator has met. A bare-knuckle boxing hipster and a reggae music obsessed football hooligan to name a couple. An episode called The Siren explores the tumultuous history of the narrator’s home town. It includes witch trials, Oliver Cromwell, nuclear bombs and the IRA. My favorite episode so far is Lefty. It’s a deeply personal biographical account with a bit of a twist. It tells the story of what it was like for the narrator growing up with Cerebral Palsy. This mostly affected the narrators left leg. Lefty the leg becomes a voiced character himself in the story. It’s an interesting way to explain what Cerebral Palsy is to a wider audience and the music score adds a lot of tension and emotion to the piece. With only a handful of episodes released thus far, Yarn story podcast is only getting started. I look forward to hearing how it progresses.
