Hi, and welcome to Fadó! An audio adventure into Fantasy, Folklore, and Fairy Tales. I’m Jon, your host, and thanks for tuning in. I started this podcast for a pretty simple reason. I like stories. I had been reading live on Facebook while we were all stuck at home, just to try and give people something to do, and to entertain myself. I started thinking, why don’t I just read some old stories, maybe talk a little about them, and if anyone is inclined, they can listen in. Maybe together, we can all learn a little something. And who knows? Maybe even escape reality, even if it’s just for a few minutes. From there, it was just a matter of a little bit of research, and deciding where to go. The result is Fadó. It’s an old Irish word that means, “Long Ago” and is often used to begin the telling of a story. Just another way to say…”Once Upon a Time”. And so, here we go! I’m glad you’re here, and I hope you enjoy the ride. No doubt what awaits us will be exciting, more than a little strange sometimes, and ultimately, I hope, all kinds of fun. So, drop in, and let’s see what we can get into. I’ll see you soon! New Season 1 Episodes every Sunday!
