Episode 49 - Alcyone & Ceyx

Miffsfires!  

This weeks MIFF is a familiar narrative whereby two lovers anger the gods (just Zeus) and get a reasonable and rational punishment (absolute overkill and unnecessary torment). This is the story of Alycone and Ceyx, and their unlucky dice with the King of the Gods. Matt and Dan also discuss Matt’s recent trip to Dublin where he had a busman’s holiday writing poetry and drinking beer.

I see a little Miffsletto of a man!

This week’s MIFF has been recommended to us by MIFFSFIT Beth, all the way from the mystical land of Kansas, USA. It’s about a Musician called Arion who wins a music contest, fights Pirates with a Lyre and then rides a dolphin home (in a cool Ancient Greek way, not a sad waterpark kind of way). Matt and Dan also discuss Matt’s recent comedy gig and whether it was funny or not.

Happy New Miffs!

 
Welcome to the first episode of 2019. To celebrate the new year we thought we’d have a throw back MIFF to our old friend Perseus. In this week’s MIFF we find out what happened to Perseus after he killed Medusa and flew off into the sunset on Pegasus. Well, turns out he went on a detour, fell in love and turned lots of people to stone. Matt and Dan also discuss their New Year’s eve experiences.

Episode 46 - Cadmus & Thebes

MIFFSFITS!

Happy New Year (nearly). Remember Episode 44 when Europa got abducted by Zeus and her brothers used it as an excuse to go travelling? Well, this weeks MIFF is about how one of those brothers, Cadmus, founded the ancient city of Thebes. This is set to be a very interesting origin story indeed...

MIFFS-tletoes!

Ho ho ho! It's the Christmas special! Get cozy, warm and relax as we discuss a very different MIFF. He's not Greek and he's certainly not Roman, it's the one, the only...Saint Nicholas! That's right, this week we're doing a myth we are all familiar with. But just how did a man called Saint Nicholas become an overweight man who breaks into children's houses as they sleep? Well buckle up, because this is a cracker. It's also Matt's birthday (Christmas Eve) so the boys also discuss that, plus give each other presents.

'Tis the season to be kind and giving.  Follow us on social media at @MiffsPodcast. You can email us at MiffsPodcast@gmail.com and we love hearing your correspondence! We ask you to send us your unwanted Christmas gifts. If you want to send them, why don't you send us an email?

Episode 44 - Europa

Rey Miffsterio (I don't know who that is - apparently a wrestler)   

This weeks MIFF is about Zeus transforming into a bull and abducting a poor young woman. Unlike other myths of a similar story, in this one we get to find out what's happening to the girls family and friends back home, as they are left to deal with this sudden tragedy. We also get to see how the girl in question deals with the horror by forming a continent - Europe. We should make a Brexit joke but frankly we're just to upset about the whole ordeal. 

Remember to follow us on social media at @MiffsPodcast. You can email us at MiffsPodcast@gmail.com and we love hearing your correspondence! Also please give us 5 Stars on ITunes. The only reason you should be exempt from doing THIS WEEK is if you have been captured by a bull and your family couldn't be bothered to find you so they just created their own cities.

Miffsterio (You know, like that villain from Spiderman?)!   

This week we're exploring a MIFF about a son who doesn't listen to his estranged father - who's a god. Obviously this is massively different to other Greek myths, whereby the characters listen to each other and no one is the son of a promiscuous God. That being send this one also includes Galaxies, high school bullying and racism. Matt and Dan also discuss how Matt is better at playing keyboard than a 5 year old.

Episode 42 - Adonis

Miffsfits!   

It's Dan's birthday week! Happy Birthday Dan. In this episode Matt gives Dan a very sweet gift but that is partially torn and broken and they discuss a lot of Birthday stuff. On top of this lush episode, we also look at Adonis (a hot piece of ass) and his VERY dodgy relationship with his two mothers: Aphrodite and Persephone. You know it's a weird episode when Zeus is the mediator.We look at who Adonis really was.

Miffsfits!

This weeks MIFF is something a little bit different. It's a collection of weird and wonderful myths that are too short to be full episodes, but too good not to mention. Matt and Dan discuss such topics as: Giant semen clouds that birth centaurs, Zeus using his thigh as a womb and a mother turned into a grizzly bear and hunted by her own son. Matt and Dan also discuss Dan's new key ring (because why not).

Miffsters!

This week we're discussing Pan, a half god, half goat who's hobbies include flora and fauna, playing the flute and being a sexual predator. A god who dwells among us on Earth, Pan is a little stranger than his colleagues residing on Mount Olympus. This MIFF focuses on the various sick and twisted female encounters that will make you think twice next time you hear a Pan flute...
