Amazing!

I met this storyteller in Thailand and have been constantly impressed with his creativity and wit. The heart he puts into his work is wonderful. Enjoy!

The Ancient World ,

Great Storytelling

A strong showing out of the gate. Great storytelling with an almost "meditative" delivery. Also name-checks Neil Gaiman in first ep (& in pod title if I'm not mistaken ;) What's not to like? Enjoy!
