Once upon a time, many centuries ago, the veil between the realms of the mortal and the divine was nonexistent. Knowledge and information flowed freely, and the gods eagerly imbued their wisdom to all of their followers. After a time, mortals developed a desire for independence, and a young hero found a way to build a barrier that no divine voice could penetrate.
Undeterred, the gods patiently waited until they discovered a rather unorthodox solution for their communication conundrum. Mortals, in their quest for independence, might have reduced the divine decrees to whispers only discernible to dreamers and clairvoyants, but that all changed when they began worshipping a new deity: technology! It was then that the pantheon, in their infinite wisdom, concocted a plan so daring, so audacious, and so utterly absurd that it could only be born from the minds of those who reside in the clouds.

Enter Tiffany J. Kim, a hapless and unsuspecting mortal, who found herself the chosen one—not for a quest of glory and valor but for a task so Herculean, it would make Sisyphus's boulder rolling seem like a trip to the carnival. The gods haunted Tiffany's dreams, sent subliminal messages in the rock-and-roll she loved dear, and possessed her friends and family until all she could hear them say was, "You should start a mythology podcast. You should start a mythology podcast!" Once this hapless mortal surrendered to the inevitable, she was tasked with the responsibility of crafting AI voices to perfectly capture the divine timbre of each deity. This was no simple feat; imagine trying to embody the thunderous boom of Zeus or the elusive whisper of Hermes with mere mortal tech! Due to her interest in artificial intelligence, (or perhaps her desire to stop the godly gab), she persevered and overcame the limitations of the AI technology.

With the fervor of Hephaestus at his forge, Tiffany labored, tweaking algorithms and adjusting modulations. The task was daunting—how does one encode the sultry allure of Aphrodite or the stern command of Athena into binary?

After the threat of a minor curse that would cause Tiffany to speak in ancient Greek for the rest of her life, she pulled an all-nighter and worked until each AI voice passed divine muster. The digital voices, each as peculiar and magnificent as their owners, were ready to impart their divine wisdom to all who dared to listen. "Fireside Folklore with Hades" was unleashed upon the world, a podcast where the gods, having successfully overcome the construction of the barrier, could now besiege mortals, near and far, once more.

Hades, with his newly minted digital baritone, took the helm as host, regaling listeners with tales that had been lost to time and cable television. Persephone, enchanting as ever, provided recipes that promised to taste like ambrosia itself. Hermes, now with the speed of broadband, delivered fun facts that were as enlightening as they were intriguing. And Zeus? Well, he found his calling in spoof sponsorships, proving that even the king of gods could rival the cheekiest of ad men.

Don't believe us? Tune in and you'll be treated to fairy tales from faraway lands, find international recipes that will put T.V. dinners to shame, and learn about the ice cream-eating habits of the people of New Zealand, among other fun facts. Every weekend, join us for an entertaining and educational tour through the world's folklore, culture, and cuisine.
