In which we discuss how, when, where, and why we might quit a game. It turns out we’ve both quit a lot of games for lots of different reasons! Tyr spins this into a beautiful archaeological metaphor, and we work through our site abandonment – whether planned, drifting away or through sudden flood. We talk about a LOT of games. We also haven’t heard…
 
In which Tyr, an archaeologist, discusses the Antiquarians Guild in Elder Scrolls Online with Catherine, who is not an archaeologist. Also: Baldur’s Gate 3, a crying baby, Hades, and why crunch sucks. Also also: whether you can still enjoy a thing if you disagree with the creator of said thing.

Some 600 years ago, citizens in the German city of Aachen started to pour out of their houses and into the streets where they began to writhe and whirl uncontrollably. This was the first major outbreak of the dancing plague, or known in the medical world as choreomania. Some accounts tell of villagers dancing and jiving to the point of exhaustion, …
 
We’re back! No I can’t quite believe it either! Anyway, we are talking about travel in this episode. It’s very exciting. Also, I’ve had a baby (he’s now 1, and absolutely adorable), and Tyr has moved to another country! We talk about this a bit. We also talk about games that have travel in them, games we play that make us travel through time and/or…

We've been exploring "The Snow Queen" all season, but in this episode of Roots of Lore, let's explore Hans Christian Andersen in a bit more depth. We're getting a sense of who he was and the context of his fairy tales, and then taking a look at a potential source of inspiration: East of the Sun and West of the Moon as collected by Norwegian folktal…
 
We are at a threshold time. Last week marked the midway point between Winter solstice and spring equinox. Now you might be feeling the stirrings of Spring. Depending on where you are, it might even already look like Spring. And it might be tempting to want to rush through this liminal tension and get Winter over with already, but here I’m inviting …
 
Happy New Year! We are standing at the portal between one year and the next, and you may be thinking of New Year's Resolutions or goals to hit the ground running here at the beginning of the year. In this episode of Roots of Lore, we're exploring some different ways of leaning into the excitement of the new year that allow us to be more in flow wit…
 
The nights grow long and dark. And from them spring holidays, rituals, celebrations, and stories. Now perhaps more than any other time of year, we find ourselves craving a slow-down to wrap ourselves in tradition, in familiarity, in comfort, and in meaning. So let us begin with the Winter Solstice, a point in the cycle of the year around which so m…

Cinderella is the fairy tale that, perhaps more than any other, sets our standard for how we expect a fairy tale to behave. But this story tells us more than what happens if you have some fancy shoes and a fairy godmother on your side. In this episode, let's explore the Cinderella of Charles Perrault as well as the Cinderella version of the Grimms—…
 
What would you choose if you had to pick one: beauty or intelligence? In this episode of Roots of Lore, we're exploring two stories that test what qualities are most important in love: Riquet with the Tuft (of Charles Perrault and Catherine Bernard) and Beauty and the Beast (of Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont) plus taking it back to some lovers o…
 
In this episode, Tyr and Catherine have opinions. No, we have Opinions. Capital O Opinions. Some of them are probably unpopular. Some of them we would defend with our lives. (Maybe.) Bad words are said. Totally @ us. (@CatherineFlick and @FothergillTyr on Twitter!) We are also going to PAX East this year! Please come visit us in the Diversity Loung…
 
Sometimes stories serve as lessons for children, but in Perrault's day, sometimes fairy tales were a manners guide for adults. This episode explores "The Fairies" (Les Fées)—sometimes known as "Diamonds and Toads"—by Charles Perrault, "The Enchantments of Eloquence" by Marie‐Jeanne Lhéritier, and the story of Frau Holle.

Animals appear often in fairy tales and folklore, and the most famous Animal as Helper is perhaps none other than our favorite booted feline, Puss in Boots (or The Master Cat). In this episode, let's start with Charles Perrault's version of "The Master Cat" to examine what this story meant in 17th century France, then we'll hear the story that insp…
 
In this episode, we're exploring the class system of Louis XIV's France through the story of Charles Perrault's Le Petit Poucet, or Little Thumb.

Will you take the path of pins or the path of needles? This is the question that Little Red Riding Hood must answer not as a girl who should be wary of talking to strangers, but as a young woman entering into sexual maturity who might be the target of smooth-talking predatory men. In this episode of Roots of Lore, we're exploring the story of Littl…
 
There are many ways to examine a story, and Charles Perrault's story of Bluebeard is a haunting one. So in this episode of Roots of Lore, we're going to look at the story from a psychological approach as well as a historical approach to see who Bluebeard could be in the time of Perrault, but also who Bluebeard might be in ourselves. Find links + sh…
 
What if Sleeping Beauty didn't wake up from her sleep because of a kiss? What if the story doesn't end with a marriage and happily ever after?

Find links + show n…
 
In season one of the Roots of Lore podcast, we'll be diving into Charles Perrault's fairy tales: Tales and Stories of the Past with Morals: Tales of Mother Goose. So in this first episode, let's set the scene of who was Perrault? What was the world like that birthed these stories? What influences do we see a play? And how do the Grimm brothers fit …
 
In this episode we talk holidays! Why do we have certain holidays in games, and not others? Why is Christmas in games not quite Christmas, but a weird pagan version of Christmas? Is it only because game devs want to annoy right wing American Christians? Where do all these in-game traditions come from anyway? (It’s probably Saturnalia.) What about a…

We discuss taking cute things into battle, gender issues of pets, domestic animals as food vs pets, particularly guinea pigs, and Fortnite and parenting despite not being parents. (T…
 
In which we talk about how much Ancient Rome liked cheese. Rebecca tries to tell a joke and Megan tries to eat cheese the ancient way; neither of which works particularly well. This episode pairs best with Pecorino Romano, Italian pasta, a bottle of Chianti, and that friend of yours who tells long winded stories without an ending.…
 
In which we talk about the inventor of the first cheese. Megan gets grossed out by a "bespoke" cheese and Rebecca says the word coagulate way too many time. This episode pairs best with acid cheeses (ricotta, marscapone, quark and cream cheese), white wines, and the smell of an old book on a hot sunny windless morning.Correction: at one point Rebec…
