Myths and Legends

Jason Weiser tells stories from myths, legends, and folklore that have shaped cultures throughout history. Some, like the stories of Aladdin, King Arthur, and Hercules are stories you think you know, but with surprising origins. Others are stories you might not have heard, but really should. All the stories are sourced from world folklore, but retold for modern ears. These are stories of wizards, knights, Vikings, dragons, princesses, and kings from the time when the world beyond the map was a dangerous and wonderful place.

Tom Thumb is the story of a guy named Tom...who is as big as his dad's thumb. A practical joke by a wizard, Tom went on to become Sir Thomas Thumb, the greatest knight in the realm, but not before becoming indigestion for a giant, a raven's canker sore, and exploring all the thrilling intricacies of a cow's digestive system.

The creature this week is a fish that's more manly than I'll ever be.

    Also I just have to say, I love the Greek mythology you do, Theseus and the Minotaur and Jason and Argonauts are my favorite stories.

    Jason, I started listening to this show a few months ago and I have listened to every single episode! I started at the very beginning and you were my first podcast! I love this show SO MUCH and I think that what you do is sooo cool. If you see this, I am just dying to know. How on earth did you get into making such a cool show? Was it just pure interest in myths and legends? Or you just wanted a new hobby? I am so curious.
