Description

Jason Weiser tells stories from myths, legends, and folklore that have shaped cultures throughout history. Some, like the stories of Aladdin, King Arthur, and Hercules are stories you think you know, but with surprising origins. Others are stories you might not have heard, but really should. All the stories are sourced from world folklore, but retold for modern ears.

These are stories of wizards, knights, Vikings, dragons, princesses, and kings from the time when the world beyond the map was a dangerous and wonderful place.

124-Greek Mythology: The Fall
Theseus has had a long and storied life, but now he faces his greatest challenge: after you've accomplished everything you set out to do and your name will live on for generations, what comes next?   The creature is the, impundulu environmentally-conscience bird who only uses alternative fuels for its tiny plane. Unfortunately, the alternative fuel is human blood.   ---   Sponsors: Blue Apron!

Thanks for the podcast and humorous narration, liked it a lot:) Just a point: Rostam doesn't belong to Islamic era; in fact he's the biggest known hero of ancient Iranian myths.

the music was distracting, loud, and didn't fit with the theme of the story.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Talk about an EXTREMELY BINGE-WORTHY podcast! I love the history (fact or fictional), the storytelling- even the way you put your own spin on it and the moral of the stories. The music is like that last satisfying bite of a banana- spilt sundae loaded with all the good stuff.

Great episode, the conclusion reminds me of an NPR podcast about the spike of suicide rates in Greenland, due to similar reasons as the wendigo.
