As the stories have been modernized to bring ancient mythical characters to life, the plots sometimes can seem a bit random while remaining entertaining. Cultureverse is a great way to learn more about ancient folklores that represent different cultures in a fun, interesting way. Listeners can appreciate the educational and concise tone used by popular hosts Kelly Marie Tran and Yara Shahidi, as well as their narration full of expression, likely backed by their amazing acting talents. Expect high quality sound effects, music, professional acting from multicultural voice actors and fascinating creatures.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
