The Gals kick off the new year by revisiting the multi-part origin story of the Greeks. Totally metal humans, Zeus gets ideas (yikes), and Prometheus is definitely a middle child.

It's mostly about booze and setting sh*t on fire. But who doesn't enjoy that? Cait goes full Celtic pagan (meaning drinks a lot of whiskey), including a LIVE "Not to F*cking Scale" moment, Professor Cait mini-lecture, and attempts to keep the dogs (I'm looking at you, Meadow) from catching on fire. Eric is also present with the sacred ceremonial bl…
 
It’s our 99th episode! A special deep dive look at our patron god, Dionysus. Dionysus and his cohort of Satyrs and MAE NADS are getting into shenanigans involving a teetotaler king, King Goldfinger, and the best bard this side of a Dionysia Festival.

Thor just can't catch a break, and once again, it's not our Loki's fault—he's just there for the buffet, literally. Poor Thor is stuck dealing with more giants (WHY are there always giants?), shady bets, and bench pressing cats. On top of it all, Thor has to figure out if that's just a really long drinking horn, or if his host is just really happy …
 
It's technically still Norsevember, and Original Gen decided she'd had enough of Professor Cait trying to act like Greece had something to do with it (it totally does). Today, we get a classic Thor and Loki adventure, in which we meet giants (WHY are there always giants?), Thor shows us why he is the worst travel agent ever, we examine ancient Nors…

One more Greek Norsevember episode! Pytheas the Greek makes it to the Tin Islands, takes a detour to Thule, makes the Gals seasick, and spends the rest of history getting slandered by the Romans.

It may be Norsevember for everyone, but for the Gals, it's GREEK NORSEVEMBER where we try to find the threads that connect ancient Greece and ancient Scandinavia! Professor Cait takes a trip down the Amber Road from the ancient Baltic Sea regions all the way down to ancient Ethiopia. Along the way, we learn why auto insurance has ALWAYS been so exp…

After being gone for a week, Cait makes quite the comeback in full Professor mode teaching us all about ravens and crows. And somewhere in there, she manages to relate it to Mythology while Other Jenn works up a job listing that has some interesting tests as part of the application process. Non-corvids need not apply. *** From Olympus to Valhalla, …

When Cait's away, the Gen/Jenns will play. This episode has life hacks, discussions on leeches in modern medicine, Viking battle reenactments, and TikTok spice rankings that push Other Jenn one step from starting a spreadsheet. This episode has it all! Well, except Cait. And here's the link for Original Gen's Audiobook which we talk about: https://…

For the Gals' Spooktacular Spooktober, Cait treats (tricks?) everyone to a Roman ghost story. But, as always, f*ck the Romans, because they can't even write a ghost story without being whiny, long-winded, melodramatic little crybabies. Still, there's a dash of true crime, hairdressing, the relative size of giant jugs, and multiple reverse-origin st…
 
Happy Spooky Season! Welcome to our transition from Grimm Adventures to Scary Tales! We travel down to the medieval German town of Hamelin, which is under siege from like 10,000 rats.

'Thrymskvitha,' or the Theft of Mjolnir, is a myth that has everything: Thor, Thor angry, Thor blaming Loki, Thor having to dress in women's clothes...but maybe this story is really about a giant who is just looking for a little love, or how you should never underestimate a 'woman's' appetite...or maybe, how it's not really Loki's fault (it totally…

It's another triggery, rage-inducing Zeus-is-a-super-dick-and-not-in-a-good-way story. It even has more bovine elements. Seriously, the ancient Greeks are just plagiarizing themselves at this point. But come along for the really long ride/swim of the tale of Europa (who probably read Ferdinand the Bull one too many times as a kid), and why someone …

This one is gonna make you mad. Almost as mad as Cait. Basically, Zeus is caught f*cking someone who isn't Hera (SURPRISE!), Hera needs anger management, and at the "tail" (haha) end of summer, we all feel bad for the heifer with the pest problem. Oh, and Prometheus makes a cameo, because, why not? *** From Olympus to Valhalla, we've got the goods …
