Mythic Hunters: Life is a big mythic hunt!
What is it?
Mythic Hunters is an original scripted comedy-horror podcast, framed as episodes of a local broadcast paranormal investigation radio show. The program is hosted by washed-up former weatherman, Burke Ashley (Kirk Novak), who will tell anyone who will listen that he is not a believer in the supernatural. The show’s other host is hapless field reporter, Sierra Peralta (Savanna Parra), who brings a positive attitude to her monster hunts even though they always end with her in deadly peril. Focusing on a new monster or urban legend every week, each episode features Burke interviewing a witness and an expert in the studio while Sierra hunts down the monster at a new location.
The series is set in present day New Mexico, although Sierra travels all over the United States on her hunts.

About the Team:
Ghaleb, Sandero, and Bancroft all met on a sketch team, The Burbs, at The Ruby LA Theater, a feminist and inclusive comedy space in Los Angeles, California. Ghaleb and Sandero were the team’s off stage writers, and Bancroft was a performer and stage manager. They quickly learned that with their skills combined they were a comedy powerhouse. Their goal in creating Mythic Hunters was to showcase the talent of their fellow Burbs, as well as just have fun. This is Sara Ghaleb’s second original audio drama (she co-created the fictional true crime series Arden in 2018) and Lauren Bancroft is currently producing the CBS Diversity Showcase.
