Retold Myths and Tales

Retold Myths and Tales

A Podcast for Lovers of Mythology and Folklore

Tanner Campbell & Quinn Greenhaus

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 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.
