Sláinte! In this episode, learn about the most famous Irish warrior of Celtic Myth, Finn McCool! We recall back to our past episode where Finn got into a fight and accidentally created the Isle of Man and inadvertently, the Giant’s Causeway and now we’re going to give you the origin story on old Fionn Mac Cumhaill! Hear the very Game of Thrones-like circumstances of his birth and how the boy got so smart with the help of some great Druid and Fianna mentors and a thumbsuckingly delicious accident involving hazelnuts and a giant salmon!
Last time, we covered the first four ages and their epic ends at the hands of the gods, extreme elemental forces and Jaguarnado! Now, we bring you into the Fifth age of the poor and brave sun boy, Nanahautl, and the rich and cowardly moon boy, Tecuciztecatl.
Time to get some knowledge about the Aztec Creation myth and the first four ages and what went wrong every time. Spoiler alert: the gods are gonna wreck shit. We gonna bring you back to the very beginning, when Ometeotl made the gods out of the primordial void, and then we gonna about the first four suns and the four Tezcatlipocas. Every age begins and ends with one of the elements, like hurricanes, floods, rains of fire, and best of all — the JAGUARNADO!
