The Stories Alive podcast is a partnership between JPR and Stories Alive. The podcast is a fun, unique audio theatre experience for all ages. Each episode features three to four amazing, original stories written by elementary students. Stories Alive brings them to life with professional actors, sound designers and musicians. Randall the Reading Rat is your host, along with his good friends, Nut, Bolt, and the Story Machine.
Episodes will be available here as they become available, or you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes by clicking here. If you have feedback on the show, or would like to contact show producer Ana Byers, write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Stories Alive is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit literacy instruction-performing arts organization based in Ashland, Oregon. The organization strives to empower children through their writing. They teach arts-integrated literacy instruction in schools and local libraries; publish all original student work in local libraries and schools; turn student writing into professional theatre performed in schools, public venues, and as podcasts. When children discover that their words and ideas have meaning and power beyond themselves, beyond a grade, and beyond the classroom, they seize the opportunity to create, imagine, and write.
