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.

This is my favourite channel. I have always liked listening to stories, exactly about myths and legends, before bed. My father used to tell me stories about demons and sages and epics, like selective short stories from Indian mythology, when I was a little girl. Well, it stopped then. I started reading books but, it's really something else when someone else reads them to you. Your channel has also helped easing my regular severe night-time anxiety. Thank you for doing this. I appreciate what you're doing. Love the stories too, by the way. :'D

I'm loving this pod cast, I love all mythology and hearing about these weird creatures I've never heard of, I get to listen to these legends while I'm at work, and it make my job more enjoyable being able to listen to all these tales. I've know a lot in Greek and Arthur, so I'm happy to hear of Norse and all the other legends, especially from Disney version, those ones sucked. but I look forward to the many episodes ahead of me

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.
