Jason Weiser tells stories from myths, legends, and folklore that have shaped cultures throughout history. Some, like the stories of Aladdin, King Arthur, and Hercules are stories you think you know, but with surprising origins. Others are stories you might not have heard, but really should. 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’ve spent years listening to these podcasts hours on end and even re listening them I think he is a really good storyteller but I think he should cut down on the ads so there aren’t so many but other than that It’s amazing
Best Podcast Ever
This has been my favourite podcast for a while now! I love the stories and I also feel that Jason’s commentary and unique flair for storytelling brings a lot to the table. Totally recommend!
Too many ads
I loved this podcast, and have been listening to it for years on end, and Im happy that you’re able to do it as a job, but theres so many ads its just not worth listening anymore. Heres hoping it gets better.
