This podcast is a storytelling journey through world-folklore. With brief context and analysis in the introductions, the main focus is the retelling of stories themselves.
From saucer-eyed spectral dogs to pond-scum haunting child-eating witches - experience the darker side of Britain's folklore in Series 1. Then journey to central and eastern Europe to the world of Slavic folklore, home of Baba Yaga and lurking nature spirits (Series 2). From there, step into the vast world of Nordic Folklore, where creatures abound in the woodlands, mountains and fjords of beautiful northern climes. Look out a series called 'Earth Lore' this autumn/winter to celebrate the natural world and a series on Japanese and Korean folklore next spring.

Refreshing

In a world of awkward-sounding and too-long podcasts, Mythos is refreshing. Her narration is artful and beautifully hypnotic. Sldo, the presentation is fresh and I learn something new every time.

Lush Narrative!

I love the combination of storytelling and atmoshpere creation in this podcast. I'm a fan of descriptive language and feeling immersed in what I am listening to, and this work fits that bill to a T. You can tell the creator has a huge passion for the art of storytelling and that this is clearly a labor of love. I also really enjoy the focus on the darker nature of some stories. This is not a sanitised Disney version - this is real myth and legend with all its edges.
