Myths and Legends
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 new favorite podcast! I discovered it less than a month ago and I’ve already made it through almost the whole backlog of episodes!

Long drives with great stories.
We’ve been listening to this podcast for years, especially during long drives. The stories entertain everyone in the car and keep the driver awake. This is a great podcast for the whole family!

This podcast is my favorite way to spend my free time. The comedy and ridiculousness of these myths keeps me on my toes for the next episode. This podcast is unrivaled by any other. It ceases to amaze me that there are so many myths shaping cultures around the world. Good job, Jason.
