Came to check out Mulan, but neither of the two Mulan episodes dealt with the original poem and the actual historical context surrounding it. The podcast makes as if she was known for fighting bandits, as if that could make one endure for 1400 years. Makes one question the accuracy of the rest. If I could give it less than one star I would.

Thank you for this show. It keeps me somewhat sane while training for a half marathon while recovering from COVID. I love hearing the old viking sagas since I grew up with some of those stories. Also reminds me of the very GoT museum in Iceland about the Icelandic sagas. Please keep telling stories and taking my mind off all the pain in my lungs! You are amazing!!!

I've found this about a year ago and it's been amazing. I've listened to all of them several times.

Nice that you for the good content.

Very entertaining and engaging. I love the host's choice of which folktales to retell (the origins of well-known stories and also the more obscure, underrated folktales) and his commentary/parodying of them.

I have been listening to Myths and Legends since the beginning. Bardic always does an excellent job of retelling these wonderful stories. Jason takes the time to give enough context to the works which help give nuance without being pedantic. I always recommend this podcast to anyone.

Amazing podcast. Great storytelling. It always makes me smile when they break the fourth wall! It brings old stories into the modern day, and I've gotten to hear so many stories I'd never heard before! I've started listening to episodes as I fall asleep since the voice is so soothing. I always save new episodes for nights I think I won't fall asleep quickly so that I don't miss the end of the story!

One word, amazing. myths and legends is retelling of classic stories in a well researched and creatively told manner that never fails to make me laugh and reflect. Please Jason never stop making these.

Brilliant podcast, one of the best that I have ever heard. The creator Jason deeply researches each story, no matter how long the source material. He adds his own unique touch to each story making it humorous and often leaves the listener with a nice conclusion or his thoughts on the story. I love this podcast, and also his other one fictional. Try this you will not regret it.

I have always loved learned about myths from all over the world, but have always struggled to find any that weren't "classical". I appreciate Jason for taking the time to tell these stories every week and suck you into a story while also calling out the problematic parts of those stories.

Been listening to myths and legends since it's start. And I love it. My boyfriend and I listen to it when were headed to bed. Is great when I have to babysit the kids as well, they always love it and how it's a new adventure each time. Definitely just one of the best podcast in general. Highly recommend.

A favorite of mine, a singular myth is related and explored for a lesson or meaning and each episode also includes a creature discussion after the main subject. Wide ranging tales from history spanning many cultures and eras.

I am always happy when I see a new episode of myths and legends appears in my play list. I enjoy the edits added by the presenter that acknowledge discrimatory or outdated values or the lighthearted treatment of plot holes.

Podcast is just this guy telling a story. I find myself wishing for a commercial, then the commercials were the same guy. It is important to include other voices for many reasons. This podcast exemplifies ALL the reasons a singular voice is insufficient to tell an engaging story.

This podcast is probably in my top 5 favorites. The host tells a very interesting and entertaining story. I like hearing the "real",original, darker versions of childhood fairytales.

Great voice, great topics, great stories. This would be a five star rating, but unfortunately the stories seem to just be there to help deliver bad jokes. The kind that try to be 'awkward'. Worse than that is the constant reminders that he disapproves of the violence in these stories. Yes we know violence is bad. Yes we know the people who first told these stories might have been ok with some of this.

One of my favorite podcasts. I love his dry humor and the way he tries to humanize the characters, particularly the women, in stories where characters were used only as symbols or tropes. He also makes sure to contextualize the space in which the story was written and how he chose which version of the narrative to retell without condoning the sexism and violence that was so prevalent and acceptable in their time.

Es uno de los mejores podcast sobre mitos, leyendas y folclore. La calidad de los episodios mejora notablemente desde el primero, lo recomiendo
