Out of this world!

I grew up listening to audio books because I struggled with reading and fell in love with story telling my favourites were always fantasy myth and or legends. So when I learned about this pod cast from my bf I was instantly hooked! I now listen daily on my commutes to and from work and any spare time during the day! Absolutely amazing thank you so much! I look forward to every new story!

Informative and Enchanting

If you've always been fascinated by old myths and legends, this is the podcast for you. Jason is an incredible and charismatic storyteller who presents these old tales so vividly that you can almost see the story unfolding(or even in some cases, hear it. I can just imagine how the cactus cat screams). The stories are very well laid out, and give you details that you may not have known. I've learned alot about Theseus and Heracles lately, and so much about the Norse Gods, who have some incredibly interesting stories! It is an amazing production. Jason and Carissa Weiser have created one wonderful show. Defintely listen to it!

What an amazing podcast!

Hi I’m Alex from BC Canada and I spend a. Lot of my work day selling potato chips for Frito Lay. It is not a glamorous job but it pays the bills. I work mostly alone and to kill boredom I love listening to podcasts. Yours by far is one of the best I found. I LOVE mythology and find all these stories and your narration of them interesting and very funny. Also I play a lot of DnD so all the references you make I find very entertaining. Thank you with keeping my mind engaged
