These are stories of wizards, knights, Vikings, dragons, princesses, and kings from the time when the world beyond the map was ...
 
The most entertaining and enraging stories from mythology told casually, contemporarily, and (let's be honest) sarcastically. Greek and Roman gods did some pretty weird (and awful) things. This isn't your average storytelling podcast: Liv focuses on Greek and Roman mythology's (mis)treatment of women, the wild things the gods did, and the all around incredible minds of the ancient world. I mean, how did they come up with this stuff? Gods, goddesses, heroes, monsters, and everything in betwee ...
 
Lore, mythology, and history summaries in easy to understand and easy to digest formats.

So far, I've covered the Cthulhu Mythos, Middle-earth, Star Wars, The Elder Scrolls, Norse Mythology, Celtic Mythology, the SCP Universe, and Warhammer 40k, but I hope to continue doing this for many years.

The new Parcast original, Mythical Monsters, tells the stories of these beasts and asks what they represent to mankind. New episodes released every Monday.

Hello friends, Mick and Nathan here. On Wednesday evening we recorded a podcast. We hadn’t a story prepared, which is something we do regularly enough - but we realised after it’s getting harder and harder to mine an hour’s worth of craic over a video call when we’ve all been detached from each other for what’s coming up on a year now. We need to d…
 
King Jimmy the 1st and/or 6th of England and/or Scotland had quite a rough ride, from “witnessing” a political assassination in utero to being attacked by the world’s rudest cat.
