127-Finnish Mythology: The Boy Who Lived

A story from the Finnish national epic, the Kalevala, about revenge, letting go, and moving on. Also why you shouldn't mess with babies that can whisper threats at three months old and survive way more things than you could.

A character tries to drown, hang, and immolate a super-baby, but it doesn't work. It's not graphic. Another character also rapes a woman, which leads to her suicide. That also isn't graphic, but it's super dark and sad.

    Even though this pick of the Kalevala verses might’ve been one of the most violent and tragic (but perhaps thanks to J.R.R. Tolkien one of the most well-known), I’m very happy to see it depicted through Myths and Legends characteristic and humorous narrative! Thank you for bringing this Epic Saga into light, looking forward to more!

    I wish I’d read about the episode rather than listened to it, assuming “violence” meant gore or something similar. For future listeners, “adult content” is an important disclaimer about a myth/legend which includes incestuous rape.
