Suggestions For Next Episodes

I love this channel, and as a Mytho Nerd Teenager myself, I would like to hear a few monsters myself. Say, the Arthurian Legend The Questing Beast, or the Dullahan, Carman, Balor, the Slaugh, Jorogumo, Apophis or maybe even the Legend of the Original Okiku. There are many things I would like to hear, but the only bad thing is that the episodes don’t come fast enough 😅 Great work! You definitely engaged Mytho Nerd Teenagers like myself. Just work on the information of the monster, it’s history, origins, retelling it’s demise and the things we need to know, like what did it look like?

But yes, this is absolutely amazing. So many legends, all in one podcast.
And people who are saying bad reviews: try giving constructive feedback?
