The Dagda's Club in Love and War The episode contains some explicit content.
The Dagda is on a mission. He travels to the west to scout the invading Fomorian armies, but it's not all business for the supreme father. On his way, he meets up with The Morrígan for their annual tryst and later on, he hooks up with an unlikely lover. All's fair in love, war and sorcery.
We talk censorship, sex in mythology, the Tao of The Dagda, Ancient Mesopotamian smut and the Greek god Pan.

The Tragedy of Balor and his Piercing Eye Balor, a giant who lives in an invisible tower, commands one of the most fearsome armies that has ever been. He is prosperous, respected and feared, but there is something in his past that torments him.
When Bres and the druid Lobais return to Balor's island stronghold from mainland Ireland reporting the rise of a new hero, the skeletons in his closet grow new flesh.
We talk Balor, his supposedly evil eye, place lore, prophecy, sleep paralysis, Assasin's Creed Valhalla - Wrath of the Druids, the 90's Balor PC RPG, Sauron in Lord of the Rings, Finn Balor in the WWE, and American Gods.

Bres has lost the kingship of the Tuath Dé and now he's throwing a strop, but he has a plan. Maybe his estranged father and his people the Fomorian's can help him. He already knows one of them, a sinister figure known as Balor.

Before anything can happen, he has to find his dad and the only one who can help is his mother, the Goddess Éire (EIriu).
