This guy is gonna be big one day!

I love the laid back angle he takes. Very creative on his sound effects. Tells a story beautifully and follows up with details that we learn as we go through the podcast. I love folktales and he is brilliant and it shows through his work. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ he’s gonna go far-he’s only just begun!! And by the way-British podcasts rock!

Very enjoyable tales

Brings a good amount of information to easy to digest podcast time format. Have found myself reading up on several of the stories presented.

Highly recommend

I don’t usually give 5 star ratings but this one is special. Bob does an excellent job telling the stories of diverse folklore and exploring the origins. Every episode is well researched and entertaining. The production value is very good and he uses just the right amount of music and sound effects. My favorite part is that the listener learns how to avoid or fight the folkloric creatures; you can never be too safe!
