Aggregated reviews for 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.

All caught up and nowhere to go (5/5)

I love this show. It's been my companion (and yes, this is a subtle doctor reference 'cause I'm working on my doctorate) every day since I found it a few weeks ago. I've listened to it at work, in my car and everytime I could weasel out a few minutes to listen. And now I'm caught up. AND I'm caught up in fictional as well :( I don't even know what to do with myself. I love Jasons voice and dry humor, all the tiny little nerdy references that makes me chuckle to myself. The show has just gotten better and better (trust me, I've listened to ALL episodes in a few short weeks). The only issue I have is that it only comes out once a week :) Please keep it up!


Pretty good (3/5)

Pretty good but the host is a cringy social justice warrior

I keep wanting to become Weiser and Weiser (5/5)

Jason's voice is reason enough to listen to this podcast. Add the fact that he is telling stories that will keep your adventourus brain half in full alert, as well as your comic-needing side, it's just amazing like one million hot dogs. The title of this review implying just how wise I am getting by listening to the "wisdom" of our long gone ancestors.
