About Us

The great heroes of myth are known throughout the world. Their deeds are legendary. But what would these champions be without obstacles in their path? Without monsters to challenge them… Dragons, sea serpents, giants, demons...they aren't merely foils to the hero. They are primal symbols reflecting ancient truths. The new Parcast original, Mythical Monsters, tells the stories of these beasts and asks what they represent to mankind. New episodes released every Monday.
