All the stories are sourced from world folklore, but retold for modern ears.

These are stories of wizards, knights, Vikings, dragons, princesses, and kings from the time when the world beyond the map was a dangerous and wonderful place.

I want to be mentioned

I really like this podcast. I especially like how he compares the price of membership to some wacky thing he found on the internet.

Gifted Storyteller

Jason has a gift for telling stories that is hard to find. What I appreciate most is the care with which he treats the material, crafting compelling narratives, taking time to comment and explain the source material, while enduring the whole podcast with a humour and proximity that makes you feel like your listening to a dear friend spinning a yarn over beers at the pub. He makes the obscure familiar and the familiar riveting. Keep up the great work!
