Retold Myths and Tales

Retold Myths and Tales is a storytelling podcast featuring traditional re-tellings of myths and folktales from all the world's pantheons; familiar and unfamiliar alike. Every episode is expertly narrated, scored, and sound-designed. Our priority is on providing accurate and honest retellings of every story from mythology or folklore we revive. Our goal is to share these myths and folktales with you in as true-to-source a way as possible, rewriting only in ways which make the adaptation of a story from mythology or folklore to the podcasting medium easier and which provide a better experience.
