Five Year Old Son Is A Big Fan!

My son is a big fan of Zeus the Mighty book series and when we found the podcast Greeking Out I was curious how these stories would land. The stories discuss some serious topics but the host and the oracle of wifi make for incredible storytellers. We’ve listened to every episode, multiple times - anytime we’re driving to and from school. He retains the stories and we talk about them at dinner. His favorite episode is the two part on Heracles. I really enjoy learning too! We can’t get enough of these and would love to hear tales from all cultures from this team. It’s an incredible podcast. Thank you!
