The Mythical Critters Are Coming!

Myth fans are bound to love this show. It takes a deep dive into some of the great folklore traditions and myths found in pop culture (Bigfoot, etc. etc. etc.). Ari is a lovely host that takes their time really getting into how something became so popular, what people believe about it, and more.

So go get your myth on...by listening to this podcast!

Great!

Thoroughly enjoy Ari's take on the mythology that suffuses our pop culture! It happens to be my favorite topic in the world. Well-researched, throughtful, and original. - Laurel (Midnight Myth)

Quirky but entertaining

Ari brings a millennial point of view to some very old stories and connects the subjects to more up to date appearances. While I as a Gen Xer am lost on a number of modern day pop culture references (I missed the Pokemon era) it is still a pleasure to hear the connections made from many of history's heros to today's pop culture icons.
