It’s a mythology show this week, as we cover two tales from Neil Gaiman’s adaptation of the Norse Myths, “Mimir’s Head and Odin’s Eye” and “The Treasures of the Gods” – We’ve heard the tales before, but not quite like this, so check em out!

Thor's-Hammer

This week we return to the Iron Age, with the tale of “Thor and Geirrod” – This one is a cracker of a tale which includes a shapeshifted Loki being locked in a chest for three months, a river that I sure wouldn’t want to swim in, and some good old Thor vs. Giant action!

This time around we have “The Song of Rig”, “The Mead of Poetry”, and “Loki’s Children and the Binding of Fenrir”, as adapted by Kevin Crossley-Holland.

Thor's-Hammer

It’s a two-fer this week, as we look at, not one, but TWO Norse myths! First we have “Skirnir’s Journey”, a chauvinistic tale of a dude who goes to Jotunheim to threaten and curse a woman on behalf of his boss, and then we look at “Gylfi and Gefion”, where an old lady fools a King and steals a bunch of this land! (So that makes it all better…)
