Great Greekology

What an amazing podcast!
Not just for kids but for anyone with an interest in mythology. The content is well summarised, the narration is splendid and the listener is kept entertained by the timeless stories.
Kudos to the creators and the team.
Makes me wish that I had done this show!
Hope you think of doing other mythological episodes once the Greek ones are over - Egyptian, Indian, Roman, just to name a few.
