Podcasts Inspired by (and That Inspired) Books
Have you ever wondered what classic tales like Treasure Island would be like if set in modern times? Or how R.L. Stine's goosebump-worthy stories could possibly offer up more bizarre spooks and suspense? Maybe your kids have become attached to a character in a book and want to dive deeper into their story. Well, then, this list of book-inspired podcasts is just the ticket you need.
Perfect for literature lovers, this fun list of podcasts features some of kids' (and adults') favorite characters, authors, and stories they know and love. But these aren't just cut-and-paste audio versions of books—they're immersive reimaginings, epic expansions, and unique new journeys inspired by many of the titles you'll find on the shelves of your local library or in our very own book reviews.
Don't be fooled, not all of these podcasts started off as books. Make sure you check out the reviews for each to see which of these titles started off as podcasts that eventually inspired books. And if you like this list, make sure to check out Best Podcasts for Kids Who Love Reading.
