I Love this podcast. I have listened to it for awhile now on any trip i have and it is so much fun. Jason does a great job injecting humor in the narrative. Keep it up!
I’ve been listening to this podcast on and off for years, and every time I come back to it, I’m reminded how great this show is. I love learning about these myths and legends, and even if I know it, Jason tells each one in a unique and interesting way!
The reader pauses most stories to editorialize. His incessant virtue signaling and groveling like a little bitch eventually killed it for me. Not a great voice, but he was amusing until this image formed of him getting pegged by his wife. You can almost hear modern testosterone levels plummet.
Really good show discussing the origins of many things. Love the way its written and narrated.
I think I've listened to every episode you have and dude you have a talent for story telling.
This podcast gets at the true nature of story telling. Imagine you are around a camp fire and an elder begins to tell you a tale from long ago. Except the elder is really snarky and is not afraid to editorialize about the not so modern conceptions of gender roles, race, and so on in the story. You will hear stories from cultures you are not familiar with. You will be surprised with the original tellings of stories Disney has appropriated. You will be entertained be Weiser's take on stories you have heard told since you were a kid. Put this on when you want to get lost in tale.
Awesome and hilarious podcast: I love it so, so much!
Just found it! Loved it! Added to the queue. Jason does a really great job telling the interesting stories from around the world. Really well done! If you like stories in any way, this is for you!
Amazing story telling
I am constantly having to explain to my friends that this show is why I know so much about mythology. Jason Weiser has a fantastic storytelling style that I have yet to do justice when repeating the stories to my friends. So I just tell them to listen instead. Because you never know what surprising truth you may find.
It's pretty obvious that Mr. Weiser loves his source material. A first-rate storyteller with an easy, conversational style, Weiser humanizes the heroes of these stories and makes it easy to see why mythology remains an evergreen source of inspiration and entertainment. Fantastic show! Wishing you many more years of success.
Incredible story telling - imagine some of the most popular and interesting stories told with fun, contemporary additions and anecdotes. You don't need any previous knowledge of these stories to enjoy them. I highly recommend this podcast!
I love the way Jason tells stories. Thanks to him, I can now make tons of obscure reference that people can't resist asking me about.
Light hearted but thorough exploration into myths of various cultures. I enjoy the humorous touch and the special oddities in each episode.
This show is great to listen to while cooking, cleaning, or chilling out at the end of the day. Once you listen to one show, you'll have to hear the rest. This show makes the stories you always wanted to hear accessible and fun.
Interesting stories told clearly. Great bedtime fare.
Love the way he synthesizes stories and explains why or how he does it. Super cool. And even though he does adds, he does them in a very creative and fun way.
Myths + dad jokes, never fails to make me smile, great storytelling
great stories, told in a simple and easily digestible way
If you love hearing about acient myths and stories from around the globe, just wait until you hear Jason's retelling on the Myths and Legends podcast. Old stories I thought I knew are brought to life in a fun way. I wish I hadn't burned through the back catalog so quickly. Plus, creature of the week!
