There is something delightful in each Activated Storytellers podcast. Each family member is quite funny and poignant in their own ways, but it is the dynamic they bring that makes each podcast captivating, amusing, and educational. Each podcast relates tales from their life on the road (they travel 365 days a year putting on shows in schools and libraries) and relate each story they activate to their location, to their travels. The father, Dennis, brings a sense of gravitas and history to each story, often relating some interesting fact (like, where the word "spoonerism" comes from) and also a dry wit. The mother, Kimberly, has a wicked sly wit and outstanding energy which shines through each cast. The son, Zephyr, displays an amazing ability to do impressions--anyone from Jack Sparrow to Napoleon Dynamite. Together, they breathe life back into stories, to show how stories save lives, and do so with such laughter and energy that listening becomes an exquisite delight each and everytime.
