Love and Loss

I didn’t start listening to this podcast until recently despite being an avid Myths and Legends listener.... and now I’m all out of episodes with no new ones in sight.

You can’t know how much you love something until it’s over.

And I definitely love this podcast. 😂😂😂

Will be missed

The Sherlock stories were some of my favorite, sad to see the podcast seems to have been put on pause, eagerly await its return, thanks again Jason. See you @mythsandlegends

Came for the host, stayed for the awesome content.

I found this via Myths and Legends and have to say I was not let down. I love the retelling of classic stories in a way modern readers can relate. Ive enjoyed them all, but I especially liked the Monte Cristo arc as that’s one heck of a book to condense and they did a great job. I couldn’t stop laughing through Inferno. I love that book and the Dante/Odysseus road trip that it is was enhanced by the retelling.
