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.

235-Korean Folklore: Ghost Story

Three stories from Korean folklore! On the first, a boy loves collecting stories, but no one really taught him proper story care, so they went the way of so many carnival goldfish. On the second, a young man protests his unfair (and kind of murdery) working conditions...by turning his boss's lunchbox into a toilet. On the third, there are people, there are cows, and no one can tell the two apart. The creature is the ziz, and it wrecks cities by accident. -- Twitter: https://myths.link/twitter Shop: https://myths.link/store Membership: https://www.mythpodcast.com/membership -- Sponsors: Simplisafe!

233A-King Arthur: The Boy with No Name

We're back in the world of King Arthur! It's been too long, and if you haven't heard our King Arthur stories (or it's been a while) then this is the perfect place to jump in. A beginner-friendly episode that kind of resets our timeline. I'm so excited to be getting back into the stories of Arthur and his knights because there are so many good ones still left to tell. The creature is the hairy, greasy Yamataro (??), your eternal reminder that, no matter how tempting it seems, to not sumo wrestle strangers on the road. I'm not going to put the tooth link here because if you have to put on your website that you're following international law to the letter and on the lookout for human rights abuses you're kind of already in the wrong business. -- Sponsors: Headspace: Go to http://headspace.com/legends for a free one-month trial, with access to Headspace's full library of meditations for every situation.

THE OPPORTUNIST SEASON TWO IS AVAILABLE NOW!

Robert Courtney was an upstanding Kansas City pharmacist and family man who was deeply devoted to his church. Courtney owned and operated two pharmacies and was perceived as an innovative businessman. His wealth was apparent to people in Kansas City in the 90?s? he lived in a $700,000 home and collected sports cars. It all came crashing down in 2001 when an oncologist discovered that Courtney had been diluting chemotherapy medications. She tipped off the FBI and the Courtney investigation became the FBI?s number one priority in 2001 up until 9/11. Courtney claimed that he started diluting the medication to pay a $600,000 IRS bill and to honor his pledge of $1 million to his church. But his greed, and the fact that he got away with it, led him to dilute more and more medications. In the end, over 98,000 prescriptions were diluted, over 4,000 patients were affected and almost 200 people died as a result. One of the most shocking aspects of this whole story is that it took 10 years for Courtney to get caught and if it weren't for one woman, he would still be working as a pharmacist today. How is that possible? We explore that question along with the even scarier question: Could this happen again?

The bad news is that, since your servants have all disappeared, you'll now have to make your own bed. Bummer. The creature this week is the Afanc, which is also from Wales, with a great reason why you don't want that angry lizard beaver monster to fall asleep in your lap.

We're back, finishing up this leg of our journey in a packed episode with a witch, pigmen, more giants, Scylla, Charybdis, Hades, Tiresias, and, of course Hercules.

With monsters, witches, sirens, and cyclopes, the Odyssey is one of the landmarks of world literature and a classic for the ages. This is the start of Odysseus's long journey home from a war that he didn't want to join in the first place. The creature is a big monster with one small request: all the water in the world forever.
