Good info when they finally get to it

I am the target audience for this: Continental Philosophy degree and a lifelong love of mythology. This should easily be the best podcast I've heard in my lifetime.

However, each text tends to be dissected word by word at the expense of the content and with no structure. Rather than flushing out details to illustrate a concept or larger theme within a text they tend to list every tangentially relevant fact for each phrase. It lacks focus.

If you are looking for a linear, concrete sequential discussion of any of these texts then this is not for you.

If you are looking to hang out with two people while they generally ponder individual lines and ruminate then it's great.

I've tried listening to multiple episodes but about 20 minutes in I find myself saying, "when does it start?!"

I want to love this. It just lacks focus.

Mythology for real life

These guys don’t just retell the myths - they take you there. Alternating reading with discussing the stories, they explore the context of the original culture as well as how the concepts are relevant to us today. This is my favorite podcast to listen to on long walks when I need to clear my head - it feels like jumping through a portal to another world, coming back with new perspectives.

Fantastic podcast!

All of the myths that have been covered are wonderful, but I’m particularly enjoying reading through the Kalevala along with you guys. Keep up the great work, only 43 Runos to go!
