Love it!

Wonderful presentation! It's like attending a first year university class being taught by Someone who both really knows her stuff, is excited, genuine and earnest about it and has a voice that would go well with fairytale retellings. I'm so glad I found this.

Best Mythology podcast I've found

If you're even mildly interested in Greek mythology this podcast is for you. Roxanne combines various versions of every myth and lots of detail with it with just the right amount of humour and sass.
