The Voice of Olympus is a podcast show hosted by Hercules Invictus, a modern follower of the gods of Olympus. From the podcast’s website:
The podcast explores the many manifestations of Greco-Roman mythology in our present day and age. We invite you to join us in celebrating Mount Olympus in spheres of activity ranging from spirituality to pop-cultural entertainment. Portals will be provided for those wishing to enter, and be an active part, of the ever-evolving Olympian mythos.
If you are familiar with the divine council worldview, this interview will be especially interesting, as Hercules accepts the idea that the gods were/are real entities. It was a fun interview for both of us since we were “speaking each other’s language” in this regard and had similar experiences in push-back from denominational Christian authority figures when seeking answers to certain questions (he in his youth, in my case more recently since recovering the divine council worldview). I couldn’t help thinking that parts of it may have been similar to conversations Paul would have had with some of the Gentiles he met. Hopefully both of our audiences will enjoy the conversation as much as we did having it.
I’m trying to listen but the audio feedback is really buggy.
I once knew someone who was deeply involved in occult practices who claimed to have entered the spiritual dimension and met the god Pan. I’m curious if Hercules Invictus has similar stories.
I must have dl’d the wrong episode. My bad. Never caught your segment. It is great that you were able to interact with Invictus and his muse and enjoyed the experience.
Throughout what I listened to the question, “Is there any corn left in Iowa?” kept repeating itself, over and over, in my mind. I accept the failure to learn as completely my own.
I must plead that I was still giddy over the Pats’ comeback win. This derangement was the obvious cause of my giggling everytime they invoked some incantation to the moon or some such.
I am certain, though, it was the reading of the Mythic Resume, coupled with contemplating the purchase of the “Hades and Persephone Keychain”, that it occured to me that some cultures are ‘dead’ because the had it coming.
Definitely very bad audio. I guess Hercules didn’t know to use headphones?
LOL – I don’t know.
