Great storytelling

This podcast is a fine portrayal of Celtic Stories, as well as a fascinating collection of good Celtic music and reviews of other websites of a Celtic Nature. I was not aware of as many fine resources until I started listening to this podcast. If one has an interest in Druidic practice, there are often reviews of other podcasts that are fine resources. But the real strength of this podcast is the research and hard work of putting in a listenable medium the Celtic Stories. Worth every moment spent listening to it.

Best of the bunch

I've listened to many other podcasts in the genre and none compare to Ruth and Gary's gift to the world. They present loads of information in a way that appeals to a wide array of interests and listeners and never get preachy. They are great! Thank you very much and keep up the great work; it is appreciated!
