The Monster Guys Podcast: Episode 056 – “Winter Rises: Gods of Ice”
Show Notes & Summary:
Oops: Correction, D.C. mentions that this is episode 55 in the intro, and it’s actually 56 … get it right, D.C.!
Winter is quickly approaching, and it’s getting cold!
Pour yourself a cup of cocoa, wrap up in a flannel, and join D.C. & Michael as they explore the gods, goddesses, and deities that are associated with Winter, Cold, and Death.
History and Folklore are rife with these figures, both benevolent and violently evil, sometimes in the same person.
Cultures around the world and throughout time all have personifications of Winter: Jokul Frosti, Ded Moroz, Yuki-onna, Jack Frost, Skaði (Skadi), Old Man Winter, Father Frost … and even, Santa. They all have a place and part.
Learn their stories, how they’ve changed, and more.
