Hi it's amazing to hear this wonderful podcast. But as non native English speaker some times it becomes very hard to hear and define some words, is there any way to have transcripts of the episodes?

**EPISODE SPOILER** **CONTENT QUOTES** I especially liked the statement: "Making some believe that Loki was born from a lightning strike in a forest. This would be fitting for Loki. To be part nature/part destruction; both beautiful & deadly all at once." The inherent mystery surrounding him, wherein: he might help you to avoid a prophesied event, but then reorganize things so that it ultimately comes to pass anyway. Brilliant! Loki is just textbook "Enigmatic." "An agent of Fate...knowing that in the end, nothing that he does matters." What excellent & precise word choice; I love it!! Is that Johnny Sims from "The Magnus Archives" podcast? If so, what an utterly fantastic, voice casting choice for Loki. I'm loving this episode SO MUCH!! #MagnusArchives

Great show, but PLEASE, stop this nonsense of making the advertising way louder than the show. One minute we're enjoying a narrative, the other I'm taking my headphones away in pain. That makes us hate whatever you're trying to advertise. And for all the gods's sake, quit the "advertising voice"...

Honestly what kind of mother is this? You'd think she would've learned her lesson after her son came back wealthy and ready to forgive. But no, she had to betray him yet again. I feel sorry for Murile. He deserved better.

Hey, are you ever going to delve into Roman mythology? You've done Greek mythology a lot. At least one third of the episodes are about it. Not that I mind. But I'd like to hear Romans myths and legends as well. And more Egyptian, Japanese and Chinese mythology.

Vagina Dentata! What is it? It's a vagina with dentures. *nudge,nudge,wink,wink* Also, check out the horror movie "Teeth", which is a modern re-telling of the myth.
