  • There's a killer on the loose in Kyoto. Young women are disappearing from the streets, never to be heard from again. Minamoto no Raikō, the legendary samurai, knows that it isn't merely a serial killer, but the demons. After he and other samurai like him drove the demons away, the began amassing in the far-off, desolate regions of Japan, but now they have a new leader: Shuten Doji, the drunken demon, a creature as smart as he is deadly.

    Raikō knows he can't face these oni alone, so he puts together a team of Japan's greatest warriors and together, just maybe, they'll have a chance.

    The creature is Angoulaffre of the Broken Teeth, great great great great (^10) grandson of Goliath and actually a pretty good governor.

  • Three connected stories of samurai from medieval Japan. On the first, Kintaro, a buff eight-year-old, discovers his destiny. On the second, Watanabe no Tsuna, a samurai warrior in his prime fights a demon that's been terrorizing a gate in Kyoto, and on the third he's recruited by Minamoto no Raiko to follow a magical floating skull to a dilapidated haunted house. All these lead into next week, when the heroes will come together to fight the greatest demon in Japan's history: Shuten-dōji.

    The creature is the aspidochelone! A napping turtle! Who might be the devil!

  • A packed episode with Thor, Odin, mythological dwarves, sword arms, and Valhalla, all ending up with a beautiful double wedding...which ends somehow worse than the last time we visited a giant wedding on this podcast. We're finishing up the saga of Egil and Asmund.

    The creature this time is little mucus boy, and if you're a villain, you don't want to get caught monologuing around this sticky, moist little hero.

On the second, a stablehand helps out two strangers who stop by his tavern for the night...and discovers a terrifying secret.

    The creature is an epic hero with oiled pecs who is doing his best to keep everyone in the world alive.

Telemachus lives each day in the shadow of the absence of his father, pushing back at the inevitable. Orestes knows what he must do to avenge his father, even if it means prolonging his family’s curse.

    The creature is a tiny elephant who might just eat your brain?

  • A story from the Pentamerone with a title so spoiler-y that I can't even say it here, but it's a fun, mildly horrifying tale of a relationship that just doesn't work out. And is also really gross.

    The creatures this week are the little devil and angel on your shoulder, except one of them is a burly wildman and the other is a snake with a human head.

  • We resume our journey to the west right where we left off: the Tang monk has been kidnapped by demons, and it's up to Sun Wukong and Pigsy to save him...if they aren't too busy making tiny monkey babies out of Sun Wukong's fur, crying, and talking to fantasically bearded men to save him.
    The creature this time is a monster skunk that isn't farting everyone to death! It's actually kind of way worse!

  • We’re back in the Mabinogion, where we’ll learn about the perils of bacon - and it’s not the cholesterol, but the magical wizard war that the first pigs ever brought to the world. Then, we’ll see why you shouldn’t lie to a wizard and how to be safe stepping out of the bath and onto your pet goat - just make sure no one is throwing spears at you.

    The creature this week is a hatchet headed prankster! Who wants to headbutt you!

  • The Opportunist tells true stories of regular people who turn sinister simply by being opportunistic. How does an everyday person turn into a thief, a cult leader, or a scammer? Instead of portraying criminals as distinctly “other,” we explore our similarities and reveal the dark potential lurking inside of all of us. The Opportunist will launch with an episodic series on Sherry Shriner, a midwest mom and life-long church goer turned internet cult leader. The series follows Sherry as she gains thousands of followers online by promoting her own religion (a blend of biblical doomsday predictions and popular alien/reptilian conspiracy theories) and profits on selling spiritual weapons that defeat aliens and demons. As she rises to the status of infallible goddess, she leaves a trail of death and destruction in her wake. We speak with family & friends of deceased cult members, prosecutors, police officers, a high profile cult expert and more. Through thought-provoking interviews and investigative reporting, The Opportunist invites the listener along with us on a thrilling journey of discovery.

  • Two short stories from Japan. On the first, an old man is in a tree surrounded by demons and faced with a desperate choice. On the second, a man has a pet that his wife is not thrilled about, so she makes that known. With scissors.

    The creature is a sad cow! Or a vampire! Either way you probably don't want to hang out with it.

  • An awesome story about a young king who wants to do the impossible! And the ill-advised! And, frankly, makes a kind of stupid choice to go into the murder forest that took the lives of his father and six consecutive brothers.

    Inside, a deeper, darker secret lurks, one that brings fairies, witches, sorcery, and...love?

    The creature is a tall hairy man who takes issue with your dating choices...all while visiting half the town every night.

  • The Aeneid, by Virgil, is one of the great world epics. Inspired by, and modeled after, the Odyssey, it's the story of Aeneas's journey from burning Troy to found the Roman empire, and all bleeding ground, sad Cyclopes, and bellybutton-wolves he encounters along the way.

    The creature is the Camazotz, from Mayan mythology, and it's like Batman, only if a Batman was an actual bat and not only didn't have an aversion to killing, but was like super into decapitation all day every day.

  • Our winter Norse saga continues, with our protagonists celebrating Christmas in Norway...and also learning what Christmas is when the king basically puts a sword to their necks and tells them to convert or die.

    We’ll also follow Gudrun on marriages 1 and 2, the first ending with a problematic wardrobe malfunction and the second with a meddling of (possible) sorcerers.

    The creature is the Tomten, a forlorn little goblin who will either make sure you’re safe in bed...or bite you.
