Since the dawn of time, stories have been the way in which values and knowledge are passed from one generation to the next — each adding their wisdom and experience along the way. It’s time to connect with the sum of our experience, to enrich our lives with the stories of today, and to inspire the great storytellers yet to come.

Too much slavery and Indian history. Could definitely be better

3
This app started out good so we bought the annual membership. Come to find out most of the history focuses on Indian history and lots of talk about slavery. Not to say that’s not a part of history but I’m tired of it being the only focus these days. More brainwashing. Disappointed. I would like to hear more history about the cities and I know there’s plenty of info that could be included instead.

The Best App I never knew I needed!

Thank you for creating this app. I’ve learned things about places that I never would have. Especially my own area! I had No idea that the carousel I rode as a child is the oldest Loof carousel in the world!

Potential but Uncertain

3
On a recent outing and decided to try the app as I knew my father who can’t read anymore, would love hearing the history while driving of certain points along the drive. The app promises 5 free stories before choosing a subscription. I only got 3. I chose to it listen to some of the stories because I looked ahead to the topics but I think it may have counted the ones I skipped as the free stories? From what I heard, they were interesting and well delivered, but I’m uncertain about subscribing but I love the concept. A little concern is how it counted my “free” stories and if it has hashed out all the bugs and working ability.

Awesome Awesome App!

5
We recently traveled from OH to VA to see Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello with a short side trip to Schuyler (pronounced Skyler) VA to see “Walton’s Mountain”. Listening to the stories of the people, places and history while we were on the West Virginia Turnpike was so interesting and all the other stories we heard while on our trip. We even started listening while driving around our home town! We immediately subscribed to the 3-year plan because we KNOW we will use it often. Good job to all the people behind this amazing app! Thank you!!

Less surfing on Google 😃

5
We drive a great deal. We used to surf Google just to read up and learn about the history on different areas. This APP already maps out places of interest and narrates information! What a great idea! Thank you!

Recently subscribed - glad I did!

5
I love the idea of this platform - so I thought I’d give it a go, and subscribe. I was not disappointed! We recently went on a major road trip from Raleigh, NC to Austin, TX and back. Along the way, we listened to great stories of people and places throughout the Southeast US - from the 1600’s to present day. Even before leaving Raleigh, we learned things about this area that we never knew. Fascinating stuff!! HearHere will continue to accompany us every time we travel, both locally and long distance. Great road companion! Bill Herndon Raleigh, NC

Texas stories need Texas narration

4
Stories are very interesting and entertainment but Texas stories need Texas narration or at least an effort to check pronunciation of localities and geography
