Wonderful

I love all kinds of myths and legends and this podcast is one of my faves. I love that the host is so passionate about keeping these separate and distinct. That’s what makes each country or area so unique! I look forward to each episode and my only complaint is that I wish there were more!

Fun intro to Celtic myths

I’m trying to connect with my pre-Christian roots. Spent some time learning about the Norse and now I’m onto Celtic mythology and history!! I wanted to find a podcast that was an easy listen and nice tour through the land of Celtic myth and legend. I love Sia^n! She’s the best. Just brilliant. Love her commentary and her readings in her “dramatic voice”. Keep it it! You’re killing it girl. P.S. learning about the Mari Lwyd was reason enough for 5 stars. What kind of awesomely dark and hilarious tradition is this that I must now do much to the bewilderment of my Neighbors. Off to find horse skulls!
