When we last left the Oedipus family, they all found out they were more related than they ever thought possible. It's somehow about to get even worse.

The story of Tatterhood is unlike any I've ever read on the podcast, and it's so excellent. The problem? I can't really say much without ruining the story. So check it out, you won't be disappointed. The creature is Tomcod, a catfish that's actually a catfish. It's a lot more off-putting than you'd think. -- Sponsor: [...]

The story this week is the reason you don’t make enemies with a decapod who’s friends with a bee, a pile of dung, a mortar and a chestnut. The other is the reason why you should buy a waterbottle for your next hike, or you might just need to be carried out of the woods. The [...]

Evil stepmothers are evil, yeah, but this one is really, really bad. She doesn't mess around with poison apples, because those take far too long... The creature this week is your sickly genie baby!

Romulus and Remus are finally striking out on their own, and what could go wrong with two seventeen year olds starting their own city when they are accompanied by a band of outlaws and they have too many weapons and not enough leadership experience and no one taught them how to share? Everything? Did you say [...]

If you're remotely familiar with the legendary history of Rome, you might know about two babies suckling a she-wolf....and that's about it. Really, though it's a story of intrigue and murder, betrayal and redemption, and, yes, a loving wolf mom with her two demigod babies. -- Sponsor: Check out https://amazon.com/legends to get two months of Kindle [...]

When we left off last week, Robin Hood was stabbed in the side by an assassin who deceived him, and he was bleeding out all while his camp was being swarmed by the Sheriff of Nottingham's men, his friends being driven off, captured, or killed. It's not looking good. The creature this week is the only [...]
