The Legend of the Rosstrappe

The Legend of the Rosstrappe


Atop Rosstrappe hill in Germany’s Harz Mountains, there is a massive indentation resembling a horse’s hoof print. According to legend, it became imprinted in the rock when a beautiful princess named Brunhilde fled from an evil giant named Bodo.
Now a human, Anansi must navigate having a fragile body and living in a complex social structure. He struggles with looking outside of himself, frequently manipulating others without considering the consequences. As he ages and tires of his earthly responsibilities, he longs to return to the life of a god. 
The West African Ashanti tribe have a rich oral tradition surrounding one central figure. Anansi is a spider, a man, a hero, a villain, a comedian, and a teller of serious truths. In our version, he begins as a god, the son of Nyame the sky god. He trades wits with his father, both demanding a series of favors from one another that escalate into madness. In the process, Anansi might just bring enlightenment to humanity. 
Following his reunion with his son, Telemachus, Odysseus puts his plan in motion, goading the suitors into anger as his allies stole their weapons and sealed the palace doors. As Odysseus prepared to reveal himself, he knew one thing; he would show no mercy. Parcasters - We hope you enjoyed this special exploration of The Odyssey!

After twenty years away, Odysseus finally returns to his homeland of Ithaca, only to find that all was not well. A small army of suitors had taken up residence in his palace, hoping to coerce his wife, Penelope, into marrying one of them so that they could lay claim to Odysseus' kingdom. With help from the Goddess Athena, Odysseus sets about his plan to retake his throne. Parcasters - What would you do if you had the hiccups...for seven weeks?

I come from a area where these kinds of stories are frowned upon, so I'm pretty new to any mythology. Enjoy the show, keep up the great work y'all!!

I am curious about something. I started listening a while ago and I love the stories. They are fantastic. What I don't understand is, after finishing up with Loki episodes, they disappeared, along with Athena. Then instead of Athena there is Hercules (like Athena episodes didn't exist) I thought maybe something was up to me. I went to parcast, just to see that there isn't even Hercules episodes, there is Gilgamesh instead of him. Checking Spotify, there are other mix-ups. What is going on?

I can't take this episode seriously. She keeps saying Swipdag, but all I hear is Sveep Dogg, like he's Snoops lesser known Norwegian cousin or something.

the sizes of the files are quite large...I compared to similar podcasts to yours and your files are almost three times the size. It makes streaming and downloading a bit more difficult...

Absolutely made me repaint a picture of Loki, this version is one I intend on viewing him as, rather than the latter of being a tyrant and maliciously mischevious. Great job guys. Keep it up! 💯 I would love to hear the story of Hades. He also is misunderstood
