Episode 3: Oracles Be Trippin'; Asgard's Debatably Racist Wall
2019 Apr 0353m 36s
Welcome once again to Flyts of Fancy! Today's a special double episode: some mythological births, and then we talk about construction! Tune in for side conversations about how high the Oracle of Delphi was and Pasiphaƫ's weird family in between the actual myths we're covering. You also might notice the mention of tricksters in the opening comments about it being a double episode, and that's because Cate absolutely 100% forgot what the episodes were before she started editing. In her defense, there is some talk of tricksters in her story, so close enough?
Episode 2: Traumatic Middle Ages Lions
2019 Mar 1436m 44s
Guten tag! This episode is unfortunately a bit shorter, but with good reason: the theme du jour is tricksters! As it turns out, trickster stories are kind of short, because there's only so long they can get away with their nonsense. Come for us talking about Coyote and Reynard the Fox, stay for the vaguely related Disney movie banter. Also, apologies in advance for the continued learning curve of podcasting, but we swear it's getting better as we go.
