An irreverent podcast that covers the adventures of the Mighty Thor, Hercules, and other mythological heroes in the comics! We also have more serious readings of mythology and other topics from time to time.. So if you like comics, mythology, silly voices, and lots of dick jokes, give us a try!
In this final installment of our coverage of Norse Mythology by Kevin Crossley-Holland, we re-present “Loki’s Flyting” from Episode 162, The Binding of Loki” from Episode 252, and finally….. “Ragnarok” from Episode 261.
