The art of story telling

Are you an English, lit, or anthology major? Or maybe you just like a good story. Maybe you have buckets of time on your hands, or are allowed to listen to music or podcasts as you sit at a desk doing a tedious and boring job. (I may fall into the incredibly specific category. But I claim nothing. ;) ) Myths and legends is a fantastic podcast. I did grow up with a lot of the original stories, and I enjoy folk tales, myths, and in general a good story. I’d love to hear the narrator’s take on Hans my hedgehog, or Sapsorrow. (Which I don’t know if it’s been done yet.) if you listen to the earlier episodes you may be put off by the quality of sound and story telling but the podcaster grew in the way he narrates and the quality of equipment in later episodes. So if you’re starting from the beginning, stick with it!

Great podcast!

Great Podcast

I rarely write reviews, but I accidentally came across this podcast and am now hooked. I started with the Sun Wukong storyline, and have been shuffling my way through the different stories. Really enjoyed Mulan and Robin Hood as well. Love the mythological creature section as well. This podcast is right in my wheel house! Keep up the great work!
