Some of the first stories ever told come from mythology or folklore. These stories are thousands of years old yet we still love to hear about them, either in their traditional atmosphere or perhaps as a funky remix of itself. But no matter how you like to hear these stories, they give us something more than just a good time - they give us a connection the past and to all the storytellers who came before us, thus linking us into the beautifully long chain of mythology lovers. Here to share some of that connection to the past are stories told by Simon Brooks, Susan Strauss, and Leeny Del Seamonds.
