73-Japanese Folklore: I will find you
A young woman's father is taken, and she decided to go to the edges of the known world to get him back, to a faraway island harboring a dark and terrible secret. The creature this week is skunk ape! He's 0% skunk, 0% ape, and 100% into stealing your produce.

71B-Sinbad: Snake Eyes
Whether it's deadly literary references, sticky cows, or extremely inappropriate eulogies, the stories of Sinbad have it all...as long as by "it all" you're looking for a story of how a rich (and, let's face it, not-so-smart) guy for whom everything pretty much always works out. It's like Mr. Magoo without the nearsightedness and with much, much more impalement and cannibalism. The creature the creature this week is a great excuse to keep your house well-stocked with red peppers and pet crabs. ---------- Sponsors: Blue Apron: For fun, fresh ingredients and recipes delivered to your house weekly, check out http://www.blueapron.com/legends to get your first three meals free with free shipping.

81-Trolls: Breakups
An episode with a story from Scandinavia about trolls. Not the internet kind. No, these are the less annoying ones that will murder you in the forest.  Two creatures this week! And they are dogs! And Myths and Legends will ruin dogs for you, too! Sponsors: Check out http://www.audible.com/myths for a free 30-day trial membership (and to get a free audible book).

82A-Arabian Nights: I'll Most Likely Kill You in the Morning
(Have you checked out Fictional? Check out Fictional! There are three episodes waiting for you. Go to https://fictional.fm for more info.) The collection known as "Arabian Nights" actually has an overarching story. And it is...interesting. Full of djinn, demons, kings, and slaves, it's an incredibly interesting way to set up one of the best known collections of folklore. The framing narrative (a way to set up a story-within-a-story) is actually much more interesting than many of the stories it sets up, with betrayal, trickery, and probably the most sex and violence we've encountered so far on this podcast. The creature this time is a wise old owl...who doesn't have a problem bringing it in the fight against demons trying to steal your fingernail clippings. ----- Sponsors: Loot Crate! August's box was great, and September's looks even better with the theme of Robotic. Check out http://lootcrate.com/legends (code LEGENDS) to get $3 off your first crate.

71C-Sinbad: There and Back and There and Back Again
If you've ever wondered about giving that strange old man a piggy-back ride in the woods, the philosophical nuances of way too much grave robbing, or how many people are necessary to take down a four-story-tall baby bird, well, then this is the episode for you. Sinbad finishes up his epic tale of epicness and we see what led to him falling back on his plan "B" of living a life of leisure on his near-infinite wealth. The creature this time is the reason you should take a giant bat with you everywhere you go. Sponsors: Casper Mattresses. They are really comfortable mattresses that you will miss when you are away from home and want to letters to telling them such but that would be for naught because mattresses don't possess thumbs or sentience. If you want to give this whole "amazingly comfortable mattress" thing a try, you can for 100 days risk free at home. Check out casper.com/legends (code LEGENDS) to get $50 off a mattress purchase. Dollar Shave Club. You can get razors for only a few dollars a month. They are super-smooth, close shaves and you don't even need to leave your house to get them. Well, the razors, that is. You generally don't leave your house to shave. Unless you're stately, plump Buck Mulligan shaving on the roof. Don't be Buck Mulligan, though. That guy was a jerk.

You can find it at: http://apple.fictional.fm for Apple Podcasts http://google.fictional.fm for Google Play http://stitcher.fictional.fm for Stitcher  --- Medusa is probably the most misunderstood villain in all of Greco-Roman Mythology, famous only for being a monster...and the hero's quest to kill her. We'll learn all about her background and follow the quest of one fated to clash with her. Also this is Greek mythology so everyone is terrible all the time always. The creature this week is the floating head and he's kind of like Pac-man...if Pac-man had a taste for people and delicious chestnuts. --- Sponsors: Lootcrate! The theme for this month's crate is Kingdom, with stuff from Adventure Time, Lord of the Rings, and the Legend of Zelda.

74-Japanese Folklore: Do You Really Want to Live Forever?
The story of Sentaro the millionaire* is about a man with a dream. Well, not really a dream, but a deep, abiding fear of death. Soon, he becomes so obsessed with avoiding the inevitable that it leads him on a journey across Japan and later the world to find a way to avoid that which will come to us all. The creatures this time are from the US and one will "please and excite" you in the forest...then lure you back to its place where it will turn you into an electric eel burrito. *Sentaro is not a millionaire and really not very smart at all. ---------- Sponsors: Blue Apron!

80B-Perseus: I'm Set Free
**Have you subscribed to Fictional yet? You'll love it! Two episodes are waiting for you at http://apple.fictional.fm, http://google.fictional.fm, http://stitcher.fictional.fm, or wherever you get your podcasts** ----- Wrapping up the story of Perseus, we'll see that fated confrontation with the eternally cosmetologically-challenged monster, Medusa, as well as fall in love. Turns out it's really easy to meet people when they are imprisoned beneath you. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. The creature this time is the gargoyle, which ages phenomenally...because it's in indestructible dragon head. Unlike the monsters from that 90s cartoon that was awesome at the time but which did not age well at all... Sponsors! Spotify is a great place to find your podcasts.

78-Egyptian Mythology: The Master Namer
Starting at the beginning of the universe and going to the beginning of the epic and mildly disturbing battles between Set and his nephew Horus, Egyptian mythology is epic, funny, interesting, and bizarre. It's taken way too long to get into this mythology, and I'm excited to dive in. The creature has no problem diving in...to your mouth. As a newt. Things really only go downhill from there. Check out http://www.blueapron.com/legends (code LEGENDS) to get your first three meals free from Blue Apron! Music:  
76-Greek Myths: Lioness
The story of Atalanta is one of the woman who just couldn't be stopped...and of a world that had a big, big problem with that. Giant monster fights, meddling gods, and well-known heroes make an appearance in the story of a heroine who just can't be kept down. The creature this week is Al, from North Africa, and he's a great reason to not run with scissors. Sponsors: Check out "By the Same Relentless Enemy" by Keith Goad, a supernatural thriller. You can find it at http://a.co/1bIj9bE on Amazon, or by going to http://www.relentlessenemy.com RXBAR Kids: These delicious bars are actually full of good stuff.

77-Romanian Folklore: Mrs. Piggy
The story of a dark (well, dark-ish. Actually, kind of not even that. You'll see.) prophecy, a kingdom overrun by monsters (again, kind of), and one woman's globe spanning quest to do what's right (that's pretty much correct). Also, pig plague parties are only fun if you're a talking swine with a moderately sinister agenda. The creature this time is the Alkutane, from the folklore of the Pacific Northwest, in the US. These creatures will leave fun little baubles by your ear. Oops. My bad, I meant to say bubbles. Bubbles filled with your undigested brains. And they're not fun. Sponsors: Simplisafe! I have, no joke, been using Simplisafe for over a year. It's a fantastic system where you don't have to have someone come out to your house and try to hard sell you on a security system and then lock you in to a contract for years. You set it up yourself, it uses its own cellular signal with a battery backup (in case the power goes out) so you don't need to get an expensive hardwired phone line to your house, and all for $15 a month.

72-Kelpie: Party Horse
A sea horse (but not that type of sea horse) that haunts the coasts of Scotland, the kelpie is a legendary cryptid that represents the dangerous unknown of the water...as well as new guys stopping by your village for the sole purpose of picking up women. The creature this time is the Shojo, a Japanese yokai, who is living its best life: by lounging on the beach drinking and pulling off daring heists. ************ That incredibly readable book on Celtic myths and legends: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0786711078/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_dp_T2_VOCszbY1WGRBD ************ Sponsors: Audible: Check out http://www.audible.com/binge for a really great deal for a full year of Audible!

79-Odin: The War to Begin all Wars
We're back in the cold, unforgiving north, at the very beginning of Odin's reign. We'll see him meet a new friend while being completely unsuspicious in giant land, a threat come from another world to try to topple the Aesir, and the lengths Odin will go to in order to gain power, acquire knowledge, and thwart his coming doom. The creature this week is an antlion. When a mommy ant and a daddy lion love each other very much, they think of ways to express their love and, well, you'll see... Sponsors: The Loot Crate this month just sounds awesome. The theme is Kingdom, with stuff from Lord of the Rings, Adventure Time, and Legend of Zelda. I know I'm excited about it.

75-Pecos Bill: Rider on the Storm
The story of Pecos Bill is that of a true American Hero...who spends half the story naked and who legitimately thinks he is actually a coyote. But don't tell him that. He's cool and won't hurt you, but you'll get into a long discussion and won't actually convince him or his horse (named Pegasus/Widowmaker/Jeremy) that he's actually a human being. Also, while we're at it, he can lasso water and air because I guess when you ask the audience to suspend disbelief, you go for broke. The creature this time is the Mongolian Death Worm. It's a sand worm, but don't go getting your maker hooks just yet, because it's no Shai Hulud. And that's a problem, because instead of the spice melange that will give you longevity and maybe prescience, it spits a virulent neurotoxin that will do precisely the exact opposite. ---------- Sponsors: Loot Crate: as usual, Loot Crate offers awesome, monthly subscription boxes full of epic and exclusive gear and collectables. This month the theme is animation, and subscribe by the 19th and 9pm PST to get stuff from Rick and Morty, Bob's Burgers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Futurama!

54A-Gilgamesh: Did We Just Become Best Friends?
The Epic of Gilgamesh is amazing. It is quite possibly the oldest epic we have, and though it only exists in fragments, it tells a surprisingly human story. There are questions of life and death, such as what it all means and why are we here? It delves into the issues of what it means to be a human rather than just a beast, what it means to be a good ruler, and what it means to leave a legacy. These are questions relevant even today, over 4,000 years after this story was told. Of course, it is also folklore, so there is a troubling amount of hairy nudity. All-in-all, this three-parter will be epic. For the creature of the week, we'll meet a creepy forest dweller with an unexpected hobby.

43-Slavic Folklore: The Wasteland
A story of a super-powered Russian hero fighting the evil, also super-powered villain known as Nightingale the Robber. Nightingale can fly, kill with a scream, and lives in the shadows of his forest. The journey will take our hero from home, through multiple stays with Baba Yaga(s), and finally into a confrontation with the legendary bandit on a quest to become the man he never thought he could be. The creature this week is sweaty, hairy, and naked...and the only way you can beat it is by wrestling it.

25-Dragons: This is Where You Get to Make it Right
The story of a famous dragon from the folklore of north east England is filled with knights, curses, and, of course, the need to kill your favorite childhood dog. The story of the Lambton Worm is a quest for redemption where many people die because of a young man who just wants to yell cuss words at children and throw his trash in a well. The creature of the week is the butter cat. That should be enough to want to listen to the creature of the week.

32-Tricksters: Wager
Three stories of tricksters. We have Coyote from Native American mythology giving great gifts and racing a turtle. There's also Anansi the spider-man from West African folklore, who is trying to buy the stories of the world. We also catch up with our old friend Loki from Norse mythology, who just wants to give Thor's wife an impromptu, un-asked-for haircut. The creature of the week is an emaciated horse who will either play harmless pranks on you, or crush you to death in the street. Our sponsor, Weebly!

135A-Tristan and Isolde: Matchmaker
I don't want to spoil anything for someone who doesn't know this story, but this three-parter has everything: sneering villains, valiant heroes, monster fights, love, loss, betrayal, and someone shoving dragon tongues down their pants despite that not remotely being the best way to transport dragon tongues. It's the long-requested original story of Tristan and Isolde. The creature is just a hungry snail...who also happens to be four stories tall and in possession of mouth tentacles.

135B-Tristan and Isolde: Secrets
Tristan and Isolde have a problem: they can't get enough of each other. After they inadvertently drank the love potion, they couldn't control their love...and it is looming like a snare, one that will destroy them and everything they love if they let it. The creature is the loup garou, from Caribbean folklore and it's the reason to carry around a keyhole with you and collect your dog's eye boogers. -- Sponsors: Turo: Get $25 off your first trip when you sign up for Turo and use promo code LEGENDS at checkout when you go to Turo.com Simplisafe: Go with the only home security I trust – SimpliSafe – by going to simplisafe.com/legendsand using code LEGENDS at checkout.

10B-Hercules: Labor Intensive
Finishing up the twelve labors, Hercules fights way, way too many things: a giant boar, a giant bull, vicious birds, man-eating horses, the three-headed hell hound Cerberus, and more, all as penance for his crime. The creature of the week are invisible weasel brothers that might give you a small cut or two...or might cut off your legs...all without you feeling it.

Bonus-U.S. Folklore: Gaslighting
As a way to say thank for voting for Myths and Legends for the Webbys (and for being the reason why we won!), we wanted to share an additional story this week. It's from the southern United States, and it was originally an episode on the Myths and Legends member feed. It's a story of two wives in a stupidity arms race over who has the worse husband. The creature is the reason why the owl is such a shady bird that never comes out during the day. Thanks again for your vote. If you liked this episode and want more like it, there are now 31+ other episodes on the member feed. Go to support.mythpodcast.com for more info. All music this week by Podington Bear
142B-Rome: Politics
Romulus and Remus are finally striking out on their own, and what could go wrong with two seventeen year olds starting their own city when they are accompanied by a band of outlaws and they have too many weapons and not enough leadership experience and no one taught them how to share? Everything? Did you say everything? Because everything going wrong is the exact right answer. The creature this week is Sir worm, AKA the Minhocão from Brazilian folklore, who likes to wear armor, eat horses, and make scientists get into fights. -- Go to https://madison-reed.com and use the code LEGENDS to get 10% off plus free shipping. -- Music: “True Blue Sky” by Blue Dot Sessions “Opus 9-2” by Chad Crouch “Ink” by Chad Crouch “Lollygag” by Chad Crouch

118-Jewish Folklore: The Eyrie
The king is annoyed. All of these people want to make him work. It's just...not fair. Sure, they're starving and about to riot in the streets, but actually showing up to work is really going to cut into his sitting around time. Unfortunately, he might not have a choice. The people are getting angry, and that leads to a journey west, farther than anyone in his kingdom has ever gone, to unearth an ancient secret. -- Sponsor: Spotify is a really great app to find not only the best music, but now the best podcasts.
