We're talking Origin Stories & Super Powers on The How to Be Awesome Podcast this week. Can Marvel superheroes take the place of Greek and Roman deities in modern witchcraft and neo-paganism? Let's dig into it.
We proudly host our podcast with Buzzsprout.
This week, Renee and guest co-host Louise McSharry discuss the best things they've eaten lately, then Renee shares the origin story of The How to Be Awesome Podcast.
Then we dive deep into the hero's journey, neo-paganism and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Can super heroes inspire us in the same way that ancient mythological heroes have? If you could have one super power, what would it be? And the crucial question, what is the best Marvel movie of all time?
Finally, Louise and Renee share what's making them feel awesome this week, and what they're ready to release.
