King Oedipus: Nepo baby? What? No, I was orphaned at a young age and earned everything the old-fashioned way: killing a guy at a four-way stop and answering a riddle. Why do you ask, Tiresias?

Migrating the feed to a different host today. Let me know if you see any weirdness (e.g. re-downloading, being randomly unsubscribed, Finnish gnomes turning your family into cats). Thanks!

This week: there is a monks v. children battle royale, mysterious singing in the forest, violent piggyback rides to Alfheim, and way too many murders. It must be Christmas in Scandinavia.

This week, we get into the Metamorphoses of Apuleius. It's the story of a young man trying to make his way in a dangerous world packed to the gills with witches. Like, there are too many witches. Witches turning into flies and birds to steal parts of dead bodies. Witches peeing on drunk guys for some reason. Just...too many witches.

Ep 296A: To Bewitch or Not to Bewitch, is out now.

This guy showed up at my cave. Asked him his name. Looked him up and he's verified on Twitter. Seems legit.

Hi there! We'll try this out and see how it goes. Here's our .

We're Jason & Carissa Weiser, and we make the long-running independent Myths and Legends. We've been going for over seven years now and focus on and from all over the world. We're also a book on that's coming out sometime!

Excited to talk with the community here if we can figure out what all these buttons do.
