Yo Mama en Agorum Est (Pt 1)

January 16th, 2018

00:0000:00

From John Cena to Catullus, from ancient Greece to the WWE, join us this week as we have a few drinks with Emily about the incredibly homoerotic world of wrestling (and shit-talking)! In this part one of two, we cover the industry standards of schtick, appropriating culture, and pecking orders (complete with chickens)!

NOTE: The wrestler I couldn't remember the name of during this episode was Damarchus (some translations call him Damaenetus). I had quoted the wrong book, though in Man Into Wolf Dr Eiser makes several mentions back to a text which would go into the Arcadian wolf-cult in more detail, it is in Dennis Hughes’ Human Sacrifice in Ancient Greece that the specific wrestler is mentioned.

The Blink 182 music video mentioned can be found here, and the chicken video mentioned can be found here.

Getting Shitfaced with Witches

December 19th, 2017

00:0000:00

Join us at Otto's Shrunken Head for a drink with Zev to talk about the intersectionality between gay culture and witch culture. We might barely scrape the tip of the iceberg, but we still get pretty deep into the theory on what it means to reclaim the beastly idea of being a monster in the eyes of society when finding your own personal power.

The books referenced in this episode were:

This week we're having a drink with Julian at The Hamilton, getting the dirt on one of the most well-known forms of playing with fate: tarot. We go into detail about how he got into the practice, how to look for the meaning behind each card, and some of his personal experiences.

…Then Thor Murdered the Plot

November 21st, 2017

00:0000:00

In this week's episode, your inebriated host almost gets punched in the face! Which the sober editor would be all for. You may remember our guest from the very first episode we aired: Asbjorn joins us again for a survey of a few of his favorite myths and legends from across various cultures that have to do with the importance of alcohol in various religions. And, for good measure, we get some insight on how to start brewing at home, as Asbjorn has also been doing that extremely well for several years.

The Hymn to Ninkasi referenced in the episode can be found here!

Sufis and Sex and Spirituality Oh My

November 9th, 2017

00:0000:00

This week we've got a Middle Eastern spin on things as we chat with Cienna about Sufism and the spirituality (and sexuality) of dance! Arguably the most active form of meditation, we explore what it means to combine dance with prayer. Cienna takes us into the roots of Sufism, as well as how to stay inspired and motivated when one's career is in the arts.

Please check out Cienna's studio and all that she and her troupes do at the TDLI website, where they have dance classes, charity events, and more.

All’s Fair in Love & Beer Pong

September 30th, 2017

00:0000:00

Join us as we discuss the dangers of conformity and how partying can go too far! This week we have a drink with Moira and examine the concepts of hazing as an indoctrination ritual, Greek Life as a precursor to idealized American white collar culture, and the inequality of social responsibility among Frats, Sororities, and Honors Societies. We also briefly cover the weight of importance given to secondhand objects and adopted cultures, secret societies, the classic BBC show "Jeeves & Wooster", and drop in some Beastie Boys trivia.

As a note: The queer frat briefly mentioned in this episode was Delta Lambda Phi.

Das Odinsbüt (PART 2)

August 8th, 2017

00:0000:00

We're back with the remainder of our two-part episode! This time, we finally get around to talking about Forn Seith vs Asatru, as well as finishing up our conversation on possession! And that's just the tip of the ice berg. We also talk about matrilineal ancestor worship, Shakespeare, ancient gender politics, the mechanics of shield fighting, and the Jesuits! That is, we drunkenly ramble about those topics. Semi-coherently.

PLEASE NOTE: due to equipment issues, this episode is extremely quiet at the beginning, and it is recommended that you turn up the volume very high, or listen with headphones. We sincerely apologize.

Links to videos of shield-only combat are forthcoming.

This episode was split into two parts, the first of which is here. And if you're looking for more things to listen to, you should check out the other podcasts on the Podcast Jukebox Network!
