Episode 8 – Polytheistssaywhat?
Welcome to Episode 8 of Dining with Druids! We’re your hosts, Ali and Jeff Lilly.
In tonight’s episode, “Polytheistssaywhat?” Ali and Jeff are on the road again, this time traveling with Cu Gwyn the Wonder Cat for company as they discuss the portrayal of religion in science fiction, the evolution of modern Paganism and its parallels with different kinds of language development. Ali totally loses her geek cred by admitting that she’s not all that into Battlestar Galactica, and Jeff gets down with his bad linguistic self talking about the relationship between Vodou spirituality and the Hawaiian creole language.
Mentioned in tonight’s episode:
- Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Dune
- William Labo‘s research in Martha’s Vineyard
- “They” as a singular pronoun
- Ninja Nuns
- The constructed language of Esperanto
- Restless teens
- Rumble strips
Thanks for listening, and join us next time here on DwD!
