Asia Culture Folk Tales & Myths Gal's Guide Podcast Podcasts


The Gal Pals have gathered around the metaphoric campfire to tell you folks tales of myth and legend. Katie brings us to ancient Mesopotamia to tell the creation tale of Tiamat, the Goddess of the Chaos and the Salt Sea, who created the world as we know it. We also talk about beer with glitter in it and the shimmer shits (can we trademark that?) that will eventually arrive.
