Best podcast yet

This is quite possibly my favorite podcast I’ve ever stumbled upon. The creator focuses on all types of myths and legends from around the world, so many of these I had never read before and was delighted to hear them. The stories are thoroughly researched (which I appreciate as an English major, haha), and often written in a snarky, sarcastic tone (which I find hilariously entertaining). If you grew up reading Greek and Roman or any other mythology and want to expand your horizons, this is the podcast for you.

Great Podcast

I’m 4 years behind, but won’t be for long! Great stories told in an authoritative and easy to listen to manner. The commentary on today’s views versus when the stories were actually developed isn’t necessary, at least not to the degree I’ve heard-but I’m only 6 episodes in. I look forward to continuing to listen, learn and hope the straight forward style doesn’t get coopted in more recent episodes as I progress. Much needed and valuable podcast. Keep it up!
