Superb!

I really enjoy the adaptations of these stories as well as the Myths and Legends podcast. Jason’s pithy and humorous observations on the material, provide yet another dimension to these well researched presentations. Keep up the good work!

More, please.

I avidly listen to Myths and Legends and can’t believe it took me so long to listen to Fictional. For books I’ve read, it’s a great way to revisit them without spending a couple of days locked away reading them. I’m not much for audio books, either, but their way of “updating” the language and even offering some asides makes it feel like my own personal Grownup Story Time. Thank you both for the hard work you put in to this and Myths and Legends, but I’ve already listened to all of these twice and my ears crave more!
