About Purple Tales Podcast The PURPLE TALES PODCAST celebrates the spirit of Barney as told through the talented people who created, produced and worked on all aspects of the cultural phenomena we know as America’s favorite purple dinosaur. The life lessons Barney has taught children since 1988 are recalled by the people who knew Barney best. Their stories and anecdotes provide a weekly reminder that the simplest of lessons can have a meaningful impact that lasts a lifetime. Your PURPLE TALES host is Carey Stinson ... to share their stories and anecdotes.Multi-media reporter and personality Nancy Jay defines her role with a quote from Irish actor Colin Mochrie: We all have a dinosaur deep within us just trying to get out. About Carey Stinson For more than thirty years, Carey Stinson has been in front of and behind the camera, first as Barney the Dinosaur on stage and screen, and now as an award-winning photographer. As Barney, Carey counts 1,500+ on-stage performances worldwide and more than 150 television and video appearances, including performances on The Today Show, Good Morning America, and Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Carey's Barney is responsible for bringing joy to tens of thousands of children and their parents through hospital visits and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Today Carey's role is that of a professional photographer, drawn to the profession by the desire to capture meaning and beauty in everyday moments. He creates inspiration by focusing his lens on what we often overlook or take for granted. His fine art images serve as reminders that each of us is unique and surrounded by a life worthy of celebration and gratitude.

Barney will never go old

When it comes to Barney yes most parents hate him from the late 80s-2000s but Barney has been a inspiration around the world through kids with autism special needs or kids with love even tho I was into Sesame Street and born in 1997 I thought Barney was new but has been out ever since the backyard gang series it’s great kids or parents will understand how big he became and what he has taught I’m glad he is on universal kids for generation z and more to come I believe Barney will be super dee duper a second time purple tales podcast tell all

Modified Histories

The podcast is okay. Kinda dry given the topic, but pretty interesting to hear some of the stories. With anyone telling stories about a collective project, you always worry about the erasure of some people and stories. The fact that these creators don’t really bring up David Joyner, as if he was just someone who played Barney one time, is very suspect. Most people connected to this project will tell you the Joyner breathed life into the character. I worry these creators are using this podcast as a way to modify the history behind this prolific production. I’ll be listening, cautiously.

My new favorite podcast!

Barney was an instrumental part of my childhood. Very few other things developed my imagination, creativity, and character as much as growing up as “a Barney kid.” I’m loving the behind-the-scenes look at my childhood, and can not wait for more episodes. Thanks for taking time to create this podcast!
