    “The child naively believes that everything should be fair and everyone should be honest, that only good should prevail, that everybody should have what they want and there should be no pain or sadness. The child believes the world should be perfect and is outraged to discover it is not. And the child is right.” – Rabbi Tzvi Freeman

    “The Adder is said to have caused the start of the Battle of Camlan, the battle in which King Arthur was killed (in 537 AD). As the armies of King Arthur and Mordred faced each other an Adder emerged suddenly. One of Arthur’s men drew his sword to kill the animal, but Mordred believed this to be a sign of attack, prompting the battle to begin.”

Wonderful!

Merlin is my absolute favorite TV show and it’s so much fun to revisit it via podcast. TV show review podcasts are pretty hit and miss for me, but this one is without a doubt a hit!! You have brilliant and funny hosts! In depth discussion of themes, character arcs, and wins and missteps of the show! Not to mention a healthy dose of adoration for Bradley James and Colin Morgan’s’ acting chops (rightfully so). This podcast strikes a perfect balance of constructive/analytical criticism and praise for all involved. They are not afraid to point out the flaws of the show while also praising it for the ways the show made so many people fall in love with it. If you are a Merlin fan or want a podcast to follow along with while you watch the show for the first time, you will not be disappointed with this one!!

Love love love ❤️

As an American, the accents are so endearing. As a Merlin fan, the dissection and discussion is thorough and entertaining and a lovely nostalgic walk. I love that they are true fan fiction fans- I relate to so much of those discussions!

Absolutely Delightful

Ruth and Michelle are phenomenal- they put their hearts, souls, and heads into making this a delightful podcast for old and new Merlin fans alike. In all honesty, I’ve never really listened to podcasts; but, I love Destiny and Chicken so much that I have become an avid listener of the show and look forward to the new episodes each week. The community involvement and response to the episodes each week on the Fascination and Frustration website is fantastic as well. The community is passionate and legitimately kind, and Ruth and Michelle foster the atmosphere well. Go watch or rewatch Merlin and listen to Destiny and Chicken!!
