What the Folklore? is creating a comedy folktale podcast

We are "What the Folklore?", a podcast that aims to make sense of senseless tales. Every week, we examine a folk or fairy tale from somewhere around the globe, typically one that people are less familiar with.  Our reader tells the story (through much heckling), and then we discuss its many plot holes, wonder about its spread and staying power, attempt to connect themes to other tales, and often cast it as a major motion picture.

The podcast airs for free every Tuesday (with bonus Ramblecasts most Sundays).  It will always be free, but it does cost us money to host and produce.  We'd love to be able to cover our costs and even have some left over to improve our show quality!

With your support, we'll be able to 
  • Pay our hosting providers
  • Improve our recording equipment
  • Hoard folklore books like a specifically-literate squirrel
  • Expand our guest heckler list
  • Start work on some of the crazy projects we come up with during recording
  • Do more art
  • Food?
Thank you for listening to our show and supporting the continued madness!

We have some ideas for side projects like more regular art, writing, and videos that we could devote more serious time to completing.
