Keep it coming

This is such an amazing way for me to learn about the myths of my ancestors. As an American mutt, it is sometimes difficult to find the stories of my ancestors. This podcast gives such an amazing path and analysis of them. It’s like taking a class with the most enjoyable professors. I only wish I could raise my hand in the middle to interact and ask questions!

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.

Too in-depth?

This is a fantastic podcast, and I enjoy how thorough and thought-provoking the disambiguation of the mythological sources. I have to thank Luke and Dan for flawlessly introducing me to Finnish lore and mythology through the Kalevala, and I am excited to see the series continue. However, this podcast does have two serious issues in my eyes: tempo and repetition. The discussion, at many times, will become drawn out and slow. It is usually punctuated with intermittent pauses and often repeats the same point simply by restating the previous subject with synonyms. Frequently, when they try to elaborate on a subject, it ends up becoming extremely repetitive and the pace of the conversation slackens. I would love for the hosts to take this into account and attempt to go through subject matter without dwelling for long periods of time on the same topic. This also results in almost tediously long episodes, and I hope they will find methods to consolidate their information. Besides this, I really love the podcast and it’s subject material, and I look forward to future improvements.
