An excellent mythology podcast

A really wonderful mythology podcast - I LOVE the myths, legends and folkloric creatures of the Celtic Nations (as a Celtic Studies major!) and this show is a real treat to listen to.

Civilised, talented, informative

I love this podcast first of all because people who make it treat each other and their listeners with respect. They follow a well-written script, they use educated language, which makes the experience of listening to the podcast relaxed and pleasurable. Besides this, the content of the podcast is excellent: they have regular episodes that relate Celtic mythology, and wonderful Special Episodes dedicated to seasonal festivals packed with music. The podcasts also include listeners' feedbak, often recorded by listeners.
