A very warm welcome to the Tales of Britain & Ireland podcast website. Many thanks for visiting.
If you’re new to the podcast then you can find more about it at the functionally titled “About” page here: About Tales of Britain and Ireland podcast.

- Illustrations and photos related to the episode
- Links to some of the sources used

Other website content
As well as the episodes pages there are also pages on:-
Folklorists – a collection of short articles about some of the folklorists, and associated other storytellers, translators and collectors who crop up during the podcast
Folklorists and the origin of the stories – a discussion of why I end up talking about folklorists so much
Legendary memes for Elven-Queen abducted teens – Over the years I’ve tried to make memes. They are dreadful and have no audience. This is a gloriously embarrassing collection of them all. Preserved here for the complete indifference of posterity
Recommendations – Links to other Folklore, Myths and Legends type podcasts, tested and approved by myself
Future website content
Other things I’d like to include on this website are:
- A map of the legends – surprisingly difficult to do
- A fuller list of sources
- Further recommendations
- Some video content??!
