Rachel & Sam Read a Story is about the fun of reading children's books, but it's also about how little sense these books make when you read them 20 years later. Sit back and let us re-read your childhood favorites, and some new additions to the world of children's lit, and make fun of them all the while! Enjoy!

Here's a story where reality... shifts. Who knows what hidden terrors lurk in the realm of REDACTED disguised as cows? I know that we don't. Together, we all can explore this mysterious realm of the crazy, cat-loving farmer and his cows(?) of squatter's rights.

Lotta swearing in this one for some reason. Sorry!

Turns out Wombats are dicks. But at least they're cute.

Written by Jackie French and illustrated by Bruce Whatley, we have an adorable story told from the perspective of a Wombat who gets some new neighbors.

We've got a bit a twist this week! It's the story of the three little pigs, but this time the wolf has a bit of a cold! What hilarity will ensue from this? (Answer: a reasonable amount)

Brought to us by Steve Smallman (author) and Bruno Merz (illustrator) is a goofy new take on a classic story!

We have a guest this week, one of the first people I met when I moved to LA. (I've even known him longer than I've known Rachel *gasp!*) It's Steve Saunders! Join all three of us as we discover things about dragons, tacos, and the love dragons have for tacos.

Turns out there is a lot of dragon love when it comes to tacos.

I gotta be real with you for a second. This is one big hamster. Also, I may have read this story entirely as a weird old man. We came up with the idea, Rachel and I, thought it would be funny, and then promptly forgot to mention it at ALL during the actual podcast.

Because we are dumb.

So go ahead and enjoy this very silly story, but be warned: I'M OLD!!
