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 ...
 
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. 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 between. Regular episodes every Tuesday, conversatio ...

Irish musicians Mick McCullagh and Nathan O'Regan discuss famous music myths, legends and true stories. Is Paul dead? Is Elvis alive? Just what exactly was Phil Collins singing about on ‘In The Air Tonight’? All stories discussed with as much factual accuracy and focus as scrawled graffiti in the backstage bathroom. Peppered among these famous tales are personal anecdotes from each of the lads that highlight the disparity between the perception and the realities of gigging life.
 
The great heroes of myth are known throughout the world. Their deeds are legendary. But what would these champions be without obstacles in their path?

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