Trickster Gods and the Mortals Who Love Them | Fate & Fabled

If you’ve attended a sleepover party in the last 50 years, chances are high that you’ve encountered a prank call – maybe you’ve even made one yourself. But for thousands of years before the invention of the telephone, pranks fell under the purview of a force even more powerful than rowdy teens. It was left to the Trickster Gods.

Hosted by Dr. Moiya McTier & Dr. Emily Zarka, FATE & FABLED explores the stories and characters of mythologies from all around the world – why they came to be and how they impact us still today.
