In today’s episode, I have the honour of featuring the wonderful music of Ian Fontova and his new album Tales of Olden. To accompany the music, we have a thrilling tale featuring Badb the battle goddess, a mythic isle, the legendary Boar King, and the wrath of Beira’s waves of misery! Ian and I very much hope you enjoy this episode, it has been a joy for us to work on it together. Below you will find links to Ian and Tales of Olden, and a few sources that inspired our story!
