Two worlds meet head-on in this historical-fantasy podcast. The hard and realistic world of medieval Nottingham and the magical and fantastic world of Sherwood Forest collide to forge legends. It's Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham like you've never imagined them. Maid Marian, Guy, and Friar Tuck too! And some new characters as well.
Each podcast tells a story inspired by the mysterious and mythical Sherwood Forest and its medieval denizens. Most of the stories are set in the evening hours, the time when the veil of the day is drawn down, and light turns to shadow. It is in these hours that the fantasy and mystery of Sherwood reveals itself.
All the stories are new and original, and they always end with a nice piece of relaxing music that beckons you into the Sherwood world. The podcast is targeted towards adults and teens.
Read by professional actors and underscored with terrific music, Sherwood Forest Legends is a great way to wrap up your evening.
