We believe one can find inspiration in the stories that have evolved out of fantasy, sci-fi, history, and myth. To share that belief, we built a radio station that pulls from our favorite films, stories, musicians, and artists who have adventured into, and sometimes out of, the mythical and historical worlds that inspire all of us. Tune in, and join us for an epic adventure!
Welcome to Heroes and Mortals Radio!
Radio forged from the heroes and mortals of history and myth!
