“The farts. The farts were coming!”

I’ve been hooked for the last 3 weeks. I love this podcast and don’t feel it necessary to hear all the episodes before giving it 5 stars. Jason Weiser an excellent story teller and adds just enough humor. Jason is also humble and self-aware to admit that he may ignorant on some subjects/cultures but he does his best to tell a story in respect to its cultural roots and is open to correction. I’ll be a lifelong listener.

I love this podcast!!

I originally found it on Spotify because I knew someone who was into Norse mythology and I wanted it lead a little bit more about the stories. Since then I’ve been listening to it a ton, and now it’s not just for the Norse mythology. I love Jason’s storytelling style and it’s a great way to pass time while doing chores, or driving.
