A home improvement project 800 years in the making that includes way too many wolves, rat parts, and beards. It's the story of the Tomten of Åbo Castle, from Finnish folklore.
The creatures are women with varying degrees of faces from British folklore. The one thing they have in common? Drunk, possibly concussed guys are the only people that have seen them.

307-Dragons: Pie Hard
37:29The story of why, no matter how good of an idea it sounds like after a few drinks, you shouldn't steal church bells and drop them into a nearby pond. You might awaken an ancient evil.

306-Latin American Folklore: Payback
35:43Two stories from Latin America folklore about people (and animals?) getting payback. The first is a story about why you shouldn't bite strangers. The second is about a man who can make the dead rise...but for a small fee will make sure that they stop.

The creature is the neugle, a handsome little horse that gives Lil' Sebastian a run for his money. -- Music: "Among the Reeds" by Podington Bear "Caprese" by Blue Dot Sessions "Chel Taza" by Blue Dot Sessions "Enter on Bull Lake" by Podington Bear "Nesting" by Podington Bear "Confluence" by Podington Bear
304-Celtic Folklore: Among Us
38:43Two stories from Celtic folklore of the things that lurk among us: witches that live in our home town, trolls that hold dance parties on the frozen wastes, and tiny, 1000-year-old fairy creatures who are buying drinks after work. The creature this week is the Giant of Smeeth, who would really like you to watch your language, please. ***Slight correction*** I mention that it is 9th century Scotland in the first story. It's...probably not? The stories are just kind of vaguely Medieval or Early Modern and it likely takes place in the late Middle Ages since witchcraft wasn't a capital offense in England until the 1500s. The 9th century bit was part of a throwaway joke about margaritas at girl's night, but I thought it would be better to be more accurate. -- Membership: https://www.mythpodcast.com/membership -- Sponsor: This episode of Myths and Legends is brought to you by BetterHelp.

303-Japanese Folklore: Rice and Means
44:16Two stories from Japan about samurai (and wannabe samurai) following their dreams. Too bad it takes fights with giant creatures and a little bit of murder to do so. The creature this time is ao nyōbō, and she doesn't want you to stop by her beautiful, horribly dilapidated mansion. -- Creature page: https://yokai.com/aonyoubou/ Fart spray: https://myths.link/ohfarts Membership: https://www.mythpodcast.com/membership -- Sponsors: BOMBAS! https://bombas.com/legends with code LEGENDS at checkout for 20% off your first purchase.
