Aliens, swans and Odin with The Drunk Mythology Gals
Is Apollo from the Greco roman tradition in reality a clever depiction of an alien life form?
Stones in France, are they waymarkers for intergalactic travelers?
Are there a race of red haired giants in America and will they change our history?
Our host Fredrik continues the mission to discover what is genuine, fake, and somewhere in between on the TV-show Ancient Aliens. In this episode we will break down episode two from season two (Ancient Aliens S02E02) called “Gods and Aliens”. It originally aired in November 2010.
This is an episode that will bring us to the warm sun in Greece to visit the ancient gods up on Mount Olympus. We will travel more north and to the great halls of Odin and Thor. Could these mythological gods really be aliens in disguise? To help us sort these theories out properly we had to go big and slightly inebriated. Joining us this week is Cait and other Jenn from “Drunk Mythology Gals”.
We take a deep dive into the mythology of aliens and the theories that Zeus and Odin are the same person. That Apollo might be the better evidence of extraterrestrial teachers and we go back to the Carnac stones yet again to explore their mysteries. We also go through the story of the Lovelock giants and the pottery shard that some claimed had “Goliath” written on it.
If you want to hear more from the Drunk Mythology gals they have a website at drunkmythologygals.com, a facebook page, instagram page and even a twitter page. If you want to email them I must prepare you that the answering times might be a tiny bit long.
In this episode we discuss:
The City of Troy
Odyssey of the Gods (by Von Däniken)
