Fabled is a bi-weekly podcast that explores mysteries, legends, myths, lore, ghosts, and fairy tales. Investigation of these tales of woe often reveal grim details that have been long hidden in the dark corners of history. Every story is a mix of both fact and fiction, and so are our episodes. We'll tell you a story, and then we'll tell you the truth. And to be perfectly honest, sometimes even our best fiction isn't as riveting as the facts.

Fairy Tales: Don't Fall Asleep Sleeping Beauty
Fairy tales remind us that there is real evil in the world, but that evil cannot and will not prevail. But the marks it leaves on us are unmistakable, unavoidable, and sometimes have everlasting consequences. The real story of Sleeping Beauty, at its core, isn't a tale of a damsel in distress; instead, it's a tale of overcoming the worst monstrosities to the best of her ability. The early editions reveal a dark truth. When women are mistreated, bad things happen—the princess learns to save herself, or monsters are created.With music by Kevin MacLeod, Experia, and Kikoru.Promo: Short Stories of Augie PetersonWebsite: https://www.fabledcollective.comFollow us on social media: IG: https://www.instagram.com/FabledCollective/ FB: https://www.facebook.com/FabledCollective/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/FabledCollectivSupport the show
Southern Gothic
The South is full of superstition, folklore, and spooks. I think it's because of our large number of Scottish descendants, but it could also be because people move slower here. We spend lots of time sitting around the table or on our dusty front porches. We're natural-born storytellers. We believe in community and keeping traditions alive.Southern Gothic Literature focuses on grotesque themes, often featuring broken, damaged, and delusional characters with possible supernatural elements. ​It's a vibrant genre that has long captured the attention of audiences. Authors who write Southern Gothic embrace their heritage and write about what they know best--the mysterious, murky madness that staunch tradition, religion, and secrecy create.Shoutouts: Southern Gothic and S-TownMusic by Kevin MacLeod, Gavin Luke, and Etienne Roussel.Support the show
