Customer Reviews

Killer__Rabbit ,

An absolutley fun way to indulge one's Celtic sweet tooth

Sian always laments about her going on tangents, but it's part of what makes her Celtic Myths podshow so fun to listen to -- it's not overly scripted and can meander about in unexpected ways, wich makes it that much more enjoyable. Her enthusiasm and passion about the subject matter is absolutely riveting and makes this one of my absolute favourite podshows! Kudos!

mickmaccana ,

I love this podcast and you can hear her love for it too.

Love it

The casual tone, and good recording quality really bring out your expertise. As a listener it feels like the tales are being told to you by a particularly learned friend.
