Episode 31: Golden Apples in Norse Mythology

Last week in episode 30, we looked at Golden Apples in Greek mythology. Today, we’re going to continue with the Golden Apples in Norse mythology with “The Kidnapping of Idun”. The apples provide immortality, strength, fight disease, they slice, they dice…as long as you take them regularly. It’s like a prescription from your family doctor or an illegal drug, depending on how you want to look at it.

We’ll also look at some of the key differences between Greek and Norse mythology. It was not our intention to described Idun as a drug dealer, the Aesir as addicts and Odin as an alcoholic, but in the end, that’s exactly what happened. We hope you can share a laugh as you listen and learn.

Fantastically Terrible Character or Creature: The God of Bacon 

The Fantastically Terrible Character or Creature this week is Sæhrímnir, the God of Bacon! What made him so special? Well, you’ve heard of infinity stones and everlasting gobstoppers, but have you ever heard of everlasting bacon? Having immortality might seem like a awesome deal. But what if you’re an immortal boar that is irresistibly delicious? In Norse mythology, you’d be cooked and sliced up every day and served every night to the hungry warriors in Valhalla. That’s a whole lotta bacon!

Sæhrímnir was sliced and cooked every day by Chef Andhrimnir (And rim neer) and eaten by all the fallen heroes of Valhalla every night. Sæhrímnir was so large, his bacon could single-handedly feed every warrior who’d fallen in battle from the beginning of the world. There was only one exception. Odin never ate the delicious everlasting bacon. But then again, Odin never ate any meat.

Legend tells us: “but no food does he need; wine is both food and drink to him.” So, I guess Odin had a strictly liquid diet. [read more…
