Welcome back to the Legends Myths and Whiskey podcast, everyone. I’m your storyteller, Tanner, and today I’ll be sharing part 4 of our six-part series on the Adventures of the Argonauts as written by Charles Kingsley in his 1889 classic, “The Heroes or, Greek Fairy Tales for My Children”.
This week we’re going to witness the building of the ship that will ferry Jason and his crew across the vast seas of Greece and beyond as they set sail on their adventures together. But first, let’s see if the heralds request by Jason from Pelias have any luck in finding his old hero friends.
When we last left our Hero he had just been brought to the home of Chiron the Centaur, wisest of all things under the sun, atop the snowy peaks of Mount Pelion. Let us rejoin him and see what happens when he starts out for Iolcus by the sea with the intention of claiming the throne as the rightful heir to the kingdom. Something tells me it’s not going to go as he plans… if it does, this is going to be a real short series.
It’s finally here! Part I of our six-part series on the Argonauts and their adventure to retrieve the Golden Fleece. This is also the first episode to be recorded in our new home at Acadia Recording Company in Portland, Maine. It is a day for wonderful things!
We start off with some exciting news about the future, then we jump into a Patron-only preview of a folktale from the Philippines. It is a story of kindness vs. cruelty and how one always wins over the other… even if it takes some time.
We’ve decided to release these series as independent Mythosymphonies. They are, of course, free to listen to on the podcast during the season which they release, but if you’d like to own these forever and always, you can pick up a copy on our Bandcamp page. Perseus can be purchase for just $1.
Our hero is wielding the severed head of Medusa quite effectively since he’s acquired it – sea monsters and aggressive men seem no match for it. Could it be that Perseus will use the head a third time when he returns to Seriphos? Let’s check in and see how Perseus fairs in this final chapter of the story of the Greek hero Perseus.
Let’s check in with our hero and see how he’s making out after beheading Medusa, giving relief to Atlas, and departing for the Libyan shores of North Africa.
When we last left Perseus, he had just embarked upon his long 7-years journey. He was armed with Harpe, the sword of the Argus Slayer, and with the shield of Athena. We rejoin our hero as he comes to the Unshapen Land in search of the three Gray Sisters. Let us see if he finds them, and what happens next.
As a podcast we are not often in control of where on the world wide web our show is listed. We love the idea of being available for everyone regardless of where they live or how they find us but some platforms are a little off-brand, unsafe from a cyber security perspective – full of malware for example – and when we’re listed on them it can give the illusion that we chose to be listed on them. The truth is that anyone can submit our RSS feed to any aggregator and just like that, bam, we’re listed on the WeHatePuppies Podcast Network. It sucks, but that’s the way it is. Sometimes however, on rare occasions, we actually get the opportunity to appear somewhere we really want to appear.
