Myths Your Teacher Hated Podcast
About This Show
This is the Myths Your Teach Hated, a bi-weekly podcast where I tell the stories of cultures around the world in all of their original, bloody, uncensored glory. Modern tellings of these stories have become dry and dusty, but I’ll be trying to breathe new life into them.

Episode 2 - The Amazing Spiderman
This week on MYTH, it's the story of Anansi, a trickster god from West African folklore. It's a tale about how we got stories in the first place, and it's one of my favorites. If you've never met Anansi before, you're in for a treat. His smartass wisecracks and his ability to be a pain in the ass to those in power make him spiritual cousins with Peter Parker, and he's appeared in at least a few Spiderman comics. Then, in Gods and Monsters, it's the Popobawa, a recent monster with an unfortunate way of waking you up at night.
