6B-Merlin: What’s Red, White, and Fighting All Over

This is where we meet Merlin, a son of a demon who uses his evil powers for good. But he's not yet the bearded sorcerer we all kind of know and love. No, he first enters our story as a serious seven year-old with power over magic, the ability to prophesy, and knowledge of the past, present, and future. The only problem? He's about to be executed by Vortigern's magicians. Luckily, his life will be saved by not one, but two dragons. Its the origin story of the world's most famous legendary wizard.

Then, on the creature of the week, you'll hear me embarrass myself trying to pronounce the name of this big, stupid dog.

    As a native Welsh speaker, I can appreciate how difficult the words must be to pronounce! You do a great job considering! Just quickly, Monmouth is pronounced ‘mon muth’ as opposed to ‘moth’ and Caerleon, as in Arthur’s battle at Caerleon has an emphasis on the first ‘e’ so it’s more Ca-ee-rleon:) Other than that I’m impressed at the pronounciation of all the Welsh words; I know people who have lived here for years and still can’t pronounce them!
    Also as a quick side note, a friend of mine studies Welsh folklore, and mentioned that even though Arthur’s legend is centred around Glastonbury Tor in Somerset, England, it is actually far more likely that it was the ‘Glas’ stone (Welsh for blue) in West Wales. Bluestone is still a feature here, and in keeping with the legends, it supposedly has its own magical quality 🙂
    Absolutely love the podcast! Kept me company on some very long car journeys!

    Hi, is there a transcript for this episode? I can normally find the link in the description… Don’t know if I’m just not seeing it.

    Loving the podcasts, thanks for creating them and bringing these stories to life again!

    I just named my newborn Emrys today, then heard this whilst walking the dog. Very apt 🙂

    I found this podcast about a week ago I think and I just wanted to say how much I’m enjoying it! Love the stories, and love your way of telling them. I’ve been all but marathon-listening to them and I’m actually really sad that I’m catching up with the current ones and will have to slow down.

    Anyway, keep up the good work!
