Episode 24: Greek and Roman Mythology
Hello my Grimm friends! We're back for one of the most popular topics in the world of mythology: the Greeks and Romans! I'm really excited to dive into this series with you. On this episode we'll be diving into the backstory and context for the stories by learning a bit about the central gods and goddesses of the period and how they are related to each other. In the next few episodes, we'll cover the origin stories and some of the more popular tales. Since Greek Mythology is such an extensive topic, I want to get you guys involved! I plan on coming back to this subject in the future, so I just want to know what you guys want to hear right now. Keep an eye on my social media to look for polls on upcoming stories and topics! I love hearing from you guys online, and now that we're back, I want to talk more about how to support your favorite podcasts. I am a completely independent podcast. I am the editor, producer, writer, researcher and star. And all of those hats cost money to wear. Patreon is the platform that I use for those of you who want to donate a bit to the show and get some great bonus content. I have one tier, just $3 a month, and it gets you bonus episodes, a shout out on the air, and my love and gratitude. I think it’s a pretty sweet deal and I’d love it if you’d consider supporting me that way. But another great thing about podcasts being free entertainment is that you don’t have to pay to show support. You can like the show on Facebook, leave a review on Apple Podcasts or your other favorite pod catcher, follow on Spotify, or simply drop by Twitter, Facebook, or my email and leave a kind message. I love to hear from everyone who enjoys the show, and these methods are the best to get new people introduced to the show.

The Return of Get Grimm and the Ancient Greece Intro
Well guys, it's official: I'm back. I've been wanting to come back for a long time, but timing has just not been right. However, that's about to change. Now that I've had my time free up again and I am able to prioritize putting out new episodes, I'm really excited to come back with a brand new season and a brand new topic. This new season is going to be all about the ancient Greeks. And I guess by association the ancient Romans. Besides the kilts, there hasn't been a group as influential on our storytelling in the western world quite like the ancient Greeks and Romans. Play rights, poets, moviemakers, storytellers, across generations and time all seem to come back to these tails. So come with me, consult your soothsayer, look for signs from the gods as we journey back to Ancient Greece.

Episode 23: A Christmas Carol Revisited
Out of all of the stories we've retold on the show, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens has to be one of the most well-loved, retold stories in Western literature. There seems to be a new release in some form every year, and it happens to be one of my favorite stories. Even though the show has bene on a bit of a hiatus for the last few months, I didn't want to let the Christmas season pass without sharing this story with you all again. Thank you to all of the pod family members who have lent voices, time, talent, and research to this particular production. I know I learned a lot putting this together and I'm excited to share the whole thing with you once more.

Episode 20: The Longest of All the Episodes
Good things come to those who wait, folks, and this episode is probably my most favorite of them all. It's noteworthy for a number of reasons. First, it marks 8 months of Get Grimm being out in the world for your listening pleasure. This is also the LONGEST episode I have produced. I went back and forth on whether to make this a two-parter, but the stories were all just so good I had to share them all. So, for episode 20 I bring you four fabulous tales from four of my favorite podcasts!
