About the Show

Spirits is a history and comedy podcast about mythology, folklore, and urban legends. Each week we pour a drink and dive into a new story from around the world. With over two million downloads and a dedicated weekly audience of 20,000 listeners, we are just getting started!

We are an independent podcast, a passion project started in late 2016 by three friends. As active members of the podcasting community, we frequently collaborate with our peers and publish resources on how to create great podcasts. We are also committed to diversifying our medium by amplifying voices from marginalized communities on our show, on social media, and with projects like #PodGalentine. We are always trying to do better.
