6C-King Arthur: How I Met Your Mother

By |2015-12-09T13:09:20-05:00August 26th, 2015|Categories: Podcast|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

Wrapping up this current run of King Arthur episodes, we find a kingdom in shambles. We'll see the final(ish..for now at least) battle between the Saxons and the Britons, and then the rule of King Arthur's uncle and father. Uther then decides to risk this extremely tenuous peace to woo a woman who isn't into him [...]

6B-Merlin: What’s Red, White, and Fighting All Over

By |2018-03-15T19:59:49-04:00August 19th, 2015|Categories: Podcast|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

This is where we meet Merlin, a son of a demon who uses his evil powers for good. But he's not yet the bearded sorcerer we all kind of know and love. No, he first enters our story as a serious seven year-old with power over magic, the ability to prophesy, and knowledge of the past, present, [...]

6A-King Arthur Prologue: The Once and Really Only that One Time King

By |2015-12-09T13:09:40-05:00August 12th, 2015|Categories: Podcast|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

The King Arthur legends don't actually start with Arthur, but with several years of war, intrigue, and betrayal among the Britons, and a slippery earl by the name of Vortigern not-so-subtly engineering the deaths of two kings to become king himself. We'll start at the very beginning, with Arthur's grandfather being murdered and his father fleeing across the channel [...]

3E-Vikings: The Debt is Paid

By |2015-12-09T13:19:30-05:00July 15th, 2015|Categories: Podcast|Tags: , , , , , , |

The final chapter of the Saga of the Volsungs follows Sigurd as he finds that navigating relationships with the in-laws is way, way more hazardous than fighting a dragon. He finds the famliy he never had, but generations of betrayal and murder finally catch up with what has been perhaps the most honorable of the Volsungs...you know, [...]

3D-Vikings: Blood of the Dragon

By |2018-03-15T20:00:02-04:00July 1st, 2015|Categories: Podcast|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Part four and the penultimate episode in the Saga of the Volsungs, the story of a legendary Norse family finds Sigurd riding with his Vikings in an attempt to reclaim his father's kingdom. Then, there's a fight with the dragon, Fafnir, who is in the possession of the cursed ring. Sigurd, our (so far) valiant hero, [...]

3C-Vikings: Renewed shall be Blade that was Broken

By |2018-03-15T20:00:06-04:00June 24th, 2015|Categories: Podcast|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

You can clearly see J.R.R. Tolkien's inspiration in this episode, what with that cursed ring finally making an appearance, a legendary sword reforged, and a selfish psychopath of a dragon sitting atop a pile of gold. Loki casually says something when he walks out the door which tears a family apart, and Odin is not fooling [...]

3B-Vikings: All that Hate’s Gonna Burn You Up

By |2018-03-15T20:00:11-04:00June 18th, 2015|Categories: Podcast|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

The Saga of the Volsungs continues, with a princess held captive by the man who killed her father, and her brother roaming the forest waging a covert guerrilla war...or just robbing people for the fun of it? There are berserker werewolves, magic swords, and a battle of really stupid insults between kings. Also, you'll see if [...]

1C-Knights of the Round Table: The Lion Knight Rises

By |2018-03-15T20:00:32-04:00May 13th, 2015|Categories: Podcast|Tags: , , , , , , |

This is in no way a remotely accurate depiction of anything that happens in this story, but it still looks cool. I mean, who wouldn't want to ride a lion? In this episode, you'll see that you should definitely interfere if you see two apex predators fighting to the death in the wilderness. We'll [...]

1B-Knights of the Round Table: You’re So Yvain

By |2015-11-08T22:49:25-05:00May 6th, 2015|Categories: Podcast|Tags: , , , , , , |

"Let's just leave our newborn unattended on the floor." "Sounds great, honey. Kind of weird the baby was born with a literal halo and definitely no horns." This week, we're continuing the story of Yvain, a knight of King Arthur's court who we left in a very bad spot. He'll find an ally within [...]

1A-Knights of the Round Table: Yvainglory

By |2016-02-11T17:11:47-05:00April 30th, 2015|Categories: Podcast|Tags: , , , , |

This...won't actually happen until the second episode. Sorry to draw you in with this very thrilling and life-like picture. This week on the Myths and Legends podcast, I’ll introduce the show and discuss what it’ll be about. Then, we’ll start right in on the story of Yvain, a knight of King Arthur's court who'll [...]
