Storytelling Podcasts

Hosted by an exuberant middle schooler, Our Veil of Smoke and Gold Podcast is a biweekly podcast and whimsical bridge for the imagination. In our contemporary world, most everything that cannot either be proven or lucrative (hence smoke and gold), is deemed unimportant and not necessarily meaningful. Each episode, explore a different magical creature or faerie through stories, their history, origins, and role in history, an intricate description of their magic and characteristics, and an in-depth analyzing of their hidden meanings as well as some personal insights and comments from the host. Encourage the imagination and acknowledge all things mystical and magical, and reawaken your childish spirit with a kid, revisiting folktales and mythology to bring you a complete understanding of the beings behind the veil.
