Member Episode 17-Russian Folklore: If Wishes Were Fishes

By | February 25th, 2017|Categories: MythPodcast|

In this episode, it's the story of the pike, and why you should talk to your food before you eat it, just in case you can get some wishes. Also, drunk stove driving is bad. Don't do it. The creature has fashion to die for. Literally. She will murder you and take your hair, and hopefully [...]

60C-Beowulf: Unknowable but Certain (ad-free)

By | February 22nd, 2017|Categories: Member Post|

There has been a menace sleeping in Beowulf's homeland since he was born. It has lived for centuries, and it is strong and dangerous, while Beowulf has lived for only eighty years, and is weakening. Yet, their paths draw them inexorably toward one another in a battle that will live on in legend, but might destroy [...]

60B-Beowulf: The Depths

By | February 14th, 2017|Categories: Podcast|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

  It's round two for everyone's favorite (only?) Geatish hero, as he bravely takes on...his former adversary's mother. Really, it's way more interesting than it sounds. Also she's not Angelina Jolie, but a terrifying, demonic swamp hag. The creature this week is so cute you won't even mind that it watches you sleep. [...]

60A-Beowulf: I’m Kind of a Big Deal (ad-free)

By | February 8th, 2017|Categories: Member Post|

You know the story of Beowulf. I don't need to do this. But really, there's mead. There's Grendel. There are mead-fueled fights with Grendel. It's just a fun, (kind of) light re-telling of the classic story, minus all the yelling, Angelina Jolie, and eye explosions of the 2007 movie. The creature this week is why you [...]

59-Greek Myths: The Violence of Our Ancestors

By | February 1st, 2017|Categories: Episodes, Podcast|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

Many connected stories from Greek mythology. We'll start with story of Hades and Persephone, and learn why she's always hanging around the underworld (hint: it's not because she wants to). Then, I'll tell the story of the curse of the house of Atreus, starting with Tantalus and his questionable food choices. It's a [...]

Member episode 16-Japanese Folklore: Fool Me Twice

By | January 27th, 2017|Categories: Member Post|

This time, it's the story of an elderly couple, their dog, and the worse neighbor of all time. Oh and also way too much feces because I apparently can't get away from the bathroom humor this week. The creature is knock knock knocking on the walls of the mines warning you about your imminent death...or just [...]
