    Episode 36: Apocalypse Now…and Again

    Episode 36: Apocalypse Now…and Again

    Last week we looked at the History of the End of the World. Today, we’ll look at more recent doomsday predictions, which, surprise, surprise, never happened. It’s time to celebrate failed predictions of armageddon, from the population bomb, to Y2K, to the Mayan apocalypse, to the black hole of doom! From thousands of years ago to the present day, there have been countless predictions about the end of the world that have...well, failed. Lucky for us, we’re still alive and kicking.

    The Fantastically Terrible Character or creature this week is Meng Po, the Chinese goddess of forgetfulness. She gives you forgetfulness soup to wipe away any memories of your previous life or time in hell.

    Episode 35: A History of the End of the World

    Episode 35: A History of the End of the World

    People think of the end of the world as a singular event. After all, it is THE END. But humans are nothing if not creative about their own destruction. The ultimate annihilation, the end of the world, Armageddon or the apocalypse has a long history. It seems the end is always near.

    The Fantastically Terrible Character or creature this week is the plague doctor. They were physicians who treated victims of the Black Death in the 1600s. Close your eyes and imagine a steampunk bird man showing up at your door after you’ve contracted a disease that’s killing everyone in your town.

    Episode 34: The Green Man is a Global Phenomenon

    Episode 34: The Green Man is a Global Phenomenon

    We’re going to put on our Indiana Jones outfit and travel the globe searching for the Green Man. We were surprised by how global the Green Man motif is. He’s a superstar from Scotland to Egypt to Mesopotamia to Thailand, and everywhere in between. We’ll travel around the world and put a pin in each stop along the way.

    The Fantastically Terrible Character or creature this week is Melusine. Melusine is a feminine water spirit that resembles a mermaid. You’ve probably seen her on the logo of a little coffee shop called Starbucks. She’s popular in the folklore of northern France. She’s a good wife and mother, but give her one day to be by herself. It’s not much to ask is it? When her husband decides one day to see what she does alone on her day of rest, he sees that she’s transformed into something that makes mermaids seem normal.

    Episode 32: Thor Was a Lovely Bride & Loki His Bridesmaid

    Episode 32: Thor Was a Lovely Bride & Loki His Bridesmaid

    We’re all familiar with Norse mythology, but did you know that one fantastic story about Thor’s wedding to a Giant? Yes, Thor was a lovely bearded bride and Loki was his manly maiden who couldn’t stop laughing. Since this is Norse mythology, it still ends with massive amounts of carnage, but before the blood starts to flow, let’s enjoy Thor’s big day with his buddy Loki. We’ll also discuss Loki’s often overlooked and pivotal role in arming and protecting the Aesir. It’s only when they kill his children and torture him that he seeks revenge.

    Our Fantastically Terrible Character or Creature this week is Thor’s hammer, Mjölnir. We all know it’s the mightiest weapon forged in mythology, but did you know that it was also a holy object? Capable of blessing, consecrating and even banishing the forces of chaos in the universe! Does that make Thor a type of cosmic pope?

Great Episode on The Shining

Love the conversations. Very details, nuanced, and in depth.

The conversation about The Shining was incredible relating to the native Americans and bison was something I had no clue about.

Great podcast!

My Favorite Podcast on Pop Culture, Art, and Comics!!!

Come for Miguel's hilarious impersonations, stay for Suzy's witty and clever insights! Great comedy, humor, and it's good for you too! I feel prettier and smarter just listening to these guys!

Not As Nerdy As You’d Expect (But Still Nerdy)

Suzy and Miguel are great to listen to. I haven’t watched as much content as them, and haven’t always watched the shows they discuss. However, their commentary intertwines history, society, and logic. The shows they analyze are just a starting point for the conversation.

They also have amazing voices for audio!
