Episode 7: NORSE AF
Hello everyone! We are back from hiatus so welcome once again to Flyts of Fancy! Today's episode: Weird Deaths! It is a very Norse episode today wherein Cate talks about why you should never just volunteer information to random people, because people are probably Loki and just TRYING to get into some shenanigans. Also why you should definitely make kids swear not to kill someone.  While Trish discusses the finer points of mead and why you absolutely should not follow someone into a murder cave - even if they have questions you definitely know the answer to.   Cover art by Jessie Jordan

Episode 4: Horus Does What Now?
Welcome once again to Flyts of Fancy! Today's episode: Mythological Beefs. We're talking throw downs, showdowns, and fights.

Episode 3: Oracles Be Trippin'; Asgard's Debatably Racist Wall
Welcome once again to Flyts of Fancy! Today's a special double episode: some mythological births, and then we talk about construction! Tune in for side conversations about how high the Oracle of Delphi was and Pasiphaë's weird family in between the actual myths we're covering. You also might notice the mention of tricksters in the opening comments about it being a double episode, and that's because Cate absolutely 100% forgot what the episodes were before she started editing. In her defense, there is some talk of tricksters in her story, so close enough? Cover art by Jessie Jordan.

Episode 2: Traumatic Middle Ages Lions
Guten tag! This episode is unfortunately a bit shorter, but with good reason: the theme du jour is tricksters! As it turns out, trickster stories are kind of short, because there's only so long they can get away with their nonsense. Come for us talking about Coyote and Reynard the Fox, stay for the vaguely related Disney movie banter. Also, apologies in advance for the continued learning curve of podcasting, but we swear it's getting better as we go. Cover art by Jessie Jordan.
