Yay!

So glad y’all developed this on top of myths and legends. There are so many classics I’m curious about but just don’t have the time or patience to read myself. This show lets me experience those stories in a way that works for my lifestyle. Great job!

Shakespeare Again?

I think it’ll be cool for Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing for an episode, just like Macbeth. I love a happy ending!
