What do you get when you mix Lollapalooza, K-Pop, and Hesiod? Take a minute to let that sink in. Oh, and trigger warnings for Gen X about how f*cking old we are and for anyone who is a recovering Christian rock listener. As for the things mentioned in the episode, check out Natalie Haynes' book, "Pandora's Jar" on Amazon. Also, the J-Hope playlist …
 
Ah...Zeus. Another episode, another incident of questionable consent. And questionable biology. And just questionable decisions all around, including ours in selecting this myth. (Also, I was trying to get this episode out first thing this morning as promised, but I've been down for the count with a bit of a fever and my stomach thing which is most…
 
Our regularly scheduled FULL episode will be here on Wednesday! We just got a bit delayed with producing Lit Crit Hour 12...part 2...for Patreon. But we wanted to share a teaser with you, so enjoy! If you want to hear the rest, make sure to check out our Patreon where you'll get this and SO much more! *** We're not even apologizing for this one. Yo…
 
What do Ted Turner, the ten commandments, and dicks from Iowa have to do with the Georgia Guidestones? A lot, as it turns out in this update on the mystery. *** From Olympus to Valhalla, we've got the goods on the gods, so join Cait, Original Gen, the Other Jenn, and SFX Kim as they spike and spill all the divine tea! If you'd like to support our p…
 
Who knew a myth about a flower would have a f*cking BODY COUNT? The story of Narcissus like you've never heard it before! *** From Olympus to Valhalla, we've got the goods on the gods, so join Cait, Original Gen, the Other Jenn, and SFX Kim as they spike and spill all the divine tea! If you'd like to support our podcast, head over to PATREON where …
 
We really didn't set out to talk about Rosicrucians, the New World Order, gubernatorial politics, apocalyptic geography, or silver sedans. It just happens when you dig into what is/was "America's Stonehenge." *faints in Georgian* *** From Olympus to Valhalla, we've got the goods on the gods, so join Cait, Original Gen, the Other Jenn, and SFX Kim a…
 
From the very first oops in ancient China to French experiments with copper wire, to sparkler burns, humans love making things go BOOM! So, we blew up our podcast (figuratively). *** From Olympus to Valhalla, we've got the goods on the gods, so join Cait, Original Gen, the Other Jenn, and SFX Kim as they spike and spill all the divine tea! If you'd…
 
It's never aliens. It just isn't. Today the gals prove it with a story that starts with sea sponges, takes a detour through conspicuous consumption Roman-style (f*ck the Romans), and ends with computer-generated astronomy modeling. Check our website at https://drunkmythologygals.com and look for the "Not to Scale" post with all the cool pics to fol…
 
We are back (and possibly drunker than ever)! We are also celebrating the upcoming release of BTS' "Proof" album by profiling the mythology behind their song, "Dionysus." Turns out, our guy is a pissed-off, oversexed, drunk feminist who also happens to be the god of the harvest, sex, marriage, fertility, creativity, theater, and booze. The "Dionysu…
 
It's Hot Drunk News! All the news you never knew you never wanted! Today's stories include (after some sad rye cracker-style excuses to our listeners about why we've been MIA): an Iron Age chancla, why are we messing with the Maya calendar again, and thrift store Caesar! Sources for today's stories: Iron Age chancla WTF Maya calendar Thrift Store C…
 
It's my (Cait) birthday on Friday, and Other Jenn is still gallivanting around Paris and London. OG is still...somewhere...it's classified. So, we have ONE MORE PATREON that we are unlocking for you! Look, hell may not be so bad. Sure, its HVAC system is out of whack, but whose isn't? And, yeah, it may not be fun once you're there, but don't they a…
 
Other Jenn is jetting off to Paris. Cait is not in the least jealous. At. All. But in honor of this trip, we present a special unlocked Patreon episode that takes us from the entrepreneurs of antiquity to a bunch of melodramatic 19th century Frenchmen. Hey, if Cait can make Greek Norsevember work, she can make anything work! If you want more episod…
 
Life happens. Welcome to Episode 12. Sometimes Norse myth is about Ragnarok. Other times it's just two guys screaming insults at each other across a river. Enjoy a dramatic reading of "The Hárbarðsljóð," or Harbard, a poem from the Poetic Edda where a ferryman (who is totally not Odin) roasts Thor and ruins his day. Thor is angry and confused. This…
 
Look, no shade on Freya. It's not like they had Tiffany's back then. We're just going to blame Loki for everything. Because we can. *** From Olympus to Valhalla, we've got the goods on the gods, so join Cait, Original Gen, the Other Jenn, and SFX Kim as they spike and spill all the divine tea! If you'd like to support our podcast, head over to PATR…
 
Which stinks worse: Caesar's murder or anchovies in your salad? The correct answer is both. The only thing that doesn't stink is Shakespeare. It's a good ol' F*ck the Romans episode. Also, don't forget to settle up your debts today—happy Ides of March! *** From Olympus to Valhalla, we've got the goods on the gods, so join Cait, Original Gen, the Ot…
 
History is here to help. For example, history tells us that even Alexander the Great passed on conquering ancient Ukraine and was like..."Uh, nah. They be crazy." The Gals are supporting World Central Kitchen in its efforts to provide meals to Ukrainian refugees, and you can donate here: https://donate.wck.org/give/236738/#!/donation/checkout *** F…
 
Thor is not into BYOB parties. Thor is not a good houseguest. Thor is okay at fishing. Thor is FABULOUS at making Cait full of rage. Also, Thor works on his pitching ERA. *** From Olympus to Valhalla, we've got the goods on the gods, so join Cait, Original Gen, the Other Jenn, and SFX Kim as they spike and spill all the divine tea! If you'd like to…
 
Ah, Socrates. Soldier, philosopher, and the WORST dinner guest ever. Seriously. He nags you about how much you drink and hogs the conversation. He also uses cult-baiting language, is crap to his family, lies about his net worth...and serves as the venerable foundation of Western civilization and thought. Sit DOWN, Socrates, and think about what you…
 
You asked relationship questions. The Gals asked the gods. They gave answers. Not good answers, just...answers. (Trust us, please don't take their advice!) From animal husbandry (side-eye at Zeus), to why Loki thinks stabbing is a perfectly fine method of aversion therapy (it isn't), this episode has something for everyone (or no one). Join Cait, O…
 
Cait teaches us that William Shakespeare was more than just Romeo & Juliet. He actually wrote a fan fiction making fun of a myth by that melodramatic soft-boiled MF-er, Ovid! That alone is reason for Other Jenn to reconsider her boycott of anything triggering negative high school English class flashbacks. This episode has the listener favorite: Rea…
 
When Cait breaks the internet, Other Jenn rushes to the rescue! And would you believe she's not just talking about Fenrir? Although Fenrir does get the obligatory mention, of course. Don't forget to listen to Episode 54 (last week) and give us your name ideas for Kim's character over on our Instagram page! Look for the post with the fox. Or is it a…
 
This week, the Gals get a crash course in cryptozoology, fae, and foxy men…literally. Our very own SFX Kim (aka Kim Alexander) joins us today to celebrate the release of her new book! Also, check our Instagram where we are running a contest to name one of Kim’s characters. You can win all three ebooks in her series. *** From Olympus to Valhalla, we…
 
Today’s tale should make Cait VERY happy because this episode is all about MURDER. Yes, today’s myth is the death of Balder, prettiest of the gods, at the hands of our favorite Trickster, Loki. Although, was Loki ACTUALLY the one to blame here? You be the judge. I have a feeling Balder was asking for it…no, really. He literally asked for it…you’ll …
 
Kim shows up to work and finds the office empty. Stepping over the charred ashes of what was a branch of holly, the names of the others echo off the remnants of holiday festivities. Then she spies someone curled up, asleep, under Other Jenn's desk... (I was sick with a bad cold! But also, f*ck the Romans. - Cait) *** From Olympus to Valhalla, we've…
 
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. Yup, it's part 3 of the Greek creation myth! And how do Highlights magazine and the pineapple from the tv show Psych fit in? You’ll just have to listen to find out. This …
 
We made it to 50 episodes! As a celebration, the gals (including SFX Kim) get together, talk their favorite moments, and spill the beans on what's coming in 2022! *** From Olympus to Valhalla, we've got the goods on the gods, so join Cait, Original Gen, the Other Jenn, and SFX Kim as they spike and spill all the divine tea! If you'd like to support…
 
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…
 
Everybody loves baking during the holiday season. Just don't expect reproductive-organ-shaped Christmas cookies to be popular at the office cookie swap. Welcome to the ancient Greek winter solstice. *** From Olympus to Valhalla, we've got the goods on the gods, so join Cait, Original Gen, the Other Jenn, and SFX Kim as they spike and spill all the …
 
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. (F*ck the Romans). This episode has it all: ancient Frenchmen, lost books, icebergs, and more. *** From Olympus to Valhalla, we've got the goods on the go…
 
The Vikings liked two things: pillaging and carving stuff in stones. WHETHER IT WAS THEIRS OR NOT (we're looking at you, Halfdann!). This week, for GREEK NORSEVEMBER, the Gals look at the literary lindworms describing Vikings in Greece! *** From Olympus to Valhalla, we've got the goods on the gods, so join Cait, Original Gen, the Other Jenn, and SF…
 
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://…
 
Poor Davelis Cave in Greece. It's just doing its own thing, trying to live its best cave life. But pagan partying, brigands, conspiracies, and some pure WTF keep complicating things. Listen now to an especially weird and spooky October special! *** From Olympus to Valhalla, we've got the goods on the gods, so join Cait, Original Gen, the Other Jenn…
 
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…
 
'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 …
 
Original Gen clearly has it in for our listeners because it's another reading. This week, it's Vafthruthnismal, or Odin's contest with the Riddle-Weaver. It's a Ravenclaw-off between OG and Other Jenn as they struggle through the worst riddles ever. Cait channels Frigg, who was just done with Odin from the get-go. Also, head over to our PATREON for…
 
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 …
 
This special UNLOCKED PATREON EPISODE is a continuation of our conversation (drunken rambling) with Cat Rector, author of "The Goddess of Nothing at All." Original Gen forces us to do a live reading of the myth about Loki and an otter. And just to be up front, it doesn't end well for Loki or the otter, and it's all Loki's fault. When is it not? But…
 
This week we have our FIRST guest…author Cat Rector, who joins us to talk about her debut novel “The Goddess of Nothing at All,” Norse mythology, Sigyn as a force to be reckoned with, and domestic Loki—his favorite aprons are discussed. *** From Olympus to Valhalla, we've got the goods on the gods, so join Cait, Gen, the Other Jenn, and SFX Kim as …
 
This week, I'm taking you to a hot beachside paradise where the women are goddesses and the boys are hot...and dead. On a semi-regular basis. That's right. We're talking the original cougar and her pool boy: Aphrodite and Adonis! This myth has everything - multiple origin stories, guest appearances by myths we've talked about, Zeus fucking things u…
 
You know how we say don't drive cars, chariots, or eight-legged horses? Well, this one is about the eight-legged horse. And spoiler, it's because of Loki. Save your shocked faces—we know. Get ready for gender and genetic mutations, why Jotunheim is a Starbucks, how to build a wall (nothing is new), and general...wait for it...horsing around. *** Fr…
 
Yeah, yeah, the Olympics are over. This episode is late. But it's been a hell of a week. I had surgery this week and have pain-med-induced spots and pink elephants dancing before my eyes as I type this. Blame typos on the meds. Anyway. We finish the Olympic thing with scandals and the actual sports of the ancient games. And on Patreon, we get into …
