67B-Gawain and the Green Knight: Head On

By | 2017-04-25T19:18:07+00:00 April 25th, 2017|Categories: Episodes, Podcast|Tags: , , , , , , , |

I wanted to name this episode "it's not easy being green," but it really is. The Green Knight had his head chopped off last episode...but still carried it out of the most uncomfortable Christmas dinner ever. Really, it's not easy being Gawain, who has to go present his neck in payment. Except it [...]

67A-Gawain: To the Dogs

By | 2017-04-18T21:41:08+00:00 April 18th, 2017|Categories: Podcast|Tags: , , , |

You probably had to read the story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight in high school. I know I did, and it's a great story. There are beheadings, green guys, confusing interactions with ladies. It might be one of the most violent non-Die Hard Christmas stories. Anyway, everyone knows that. You probably don't know [...]

66-Paul Bunyan: Truth in Advertising

By | 2017-04-11T21:59:49+00:00 April 11th, 2017|Categories: Episodes, Podcast|Tags: , , , , |

You know how to make your stories completely resistant to any ridicule from a future podcaster? Make them as ridiculous as possible. The stories of Paul Bunyan arose from the camps of lumberjacks in the US in the 1880s, but he spread to be a nationwide symbol of American strength and a pioneer [...]

65-Oedipus: Motherboy

By | 2017-04-04T22:04:12+00:00 April 4th, 2017|Categories: Episodes, Podcast|Tags: , , , , , |

The story of Oedipus is fun until it isn't. I've met people with varying degrees of familiarity with the story. Some are familiar only with the central premise of the story, while others' knowledge only extends to a certain disgusting little complex popularized by a similarly-disgusting Viennese psychologist. Regardless, the story of Oedipus is [...]

Member Episode 18-Grimm: We are the Music Makers

By | 2017-03-31T21:16:06+00:00 March 31st, 2017|Categories: Member Post|

The story of the town musicians of Bremen... a tale where the titular characters are neither musicians or from Bremen. You'll see that it's never too late to start again, and that is doubly true if someone is trying to kill you. When it comes to the creature this time, get ready to be super annoyed [...]

64-Frog Prince: Warts and All

By | 2017-03-21T22:27:09+00:00 March 21st, 2017|Categories: Episodes, MythPodcast, Podcast|Tags: , , , , , , , |

The story of the frog prince is well known - a beautiful princess meets a frog, kisses him, and he turns out to be a prince. Except, in the earliest version, it doesn't go like that at all. I won't spoil it, but the original frog prince is extremely bizarre, and I had [...]
