Probably Improbable: A Folklore Comedy Podcast

A discouraged artist and discouraged actress tell each other about things that don't exist. Carly Swenson and Samantha Veldhouse Papke take you on an impressively delightful and distracted journey of mythical creatures, legendary beings, paranormal entities and...clowns? (Good job, Sam.) They’re not historians or educators, they're two smartass women who are curious and know how to use Google. It’s a lot like other folklore podcasts, (but less reliably researched, less well-written, and with more jokes about penises, cursing, occasional feminist rants, and adorable pets.)
