New Barn Stories podcast highlights the “softer side” of the horse world.
EQUUS Magazine, part of Active Interest Media’s Equine Network, has launched a new podcast for people who love horses.
The bi-weekly Barn Stories podcast, hosted by EQUUS Editor Laurie Prinz and EQUUS Managing Editor Christine Barakat, will feature a professional voice actor reading True Tales, Back Pages and essays published in EQUUS over the years. For each episode, the editors describe the article being featured and, where appropriate, provide background about the topic or author.
“EQUUS has told the stories of many amazing horses and people over the years. We see this podcast as an opportunity to rediscover some of our favorite articles from our past,” says EQUUS Editor Laurie Prinz. “And it’s exciting to bring these stories to life in a whole new way.”
EQUUS Barn Stories is available on iTunes, SoundCloud, and Stitcher.
New episodes will be available every other Wednesday. Visit soundcloud.com/Barn Stories to download and listen to Barn Stories on your favorite device now.
