Is Jarnsaxa Rising a New Podcast?

Nope. Jarnsaxa Rising has been around for a while now. But, every time Marvel releases a Thor movie or a Loki television show, interest in the podcast re-emerges.

Interest in Jarnsaxa also rematerializes when Neil Gaiman makes new stories about old gods and immortal creatures. He’s very good at getting people excited about endless beings.

Loads more details, including reviews and content warnings, are available in the Jarnsaxa Rising Press Kit.

Who is Jarnsaxa?

She’s your best friend, your worst nightmare, one of the nine mothers of Heimdallr, the mother of Modi and Magni, the last surviving full-blooded Jotun, the Queen of Blades, the goddess of iron, the love of Thor’s life, and a menace to society. I love her.

Why or How Should I Listen to the Jarnsaxa Rising Podcast?

If you enjoy American Gods, Sandman, the Thor Movies, the Loki series, Good Omens, and/or the Norse Myths, this is your kind of show. If you enjoy Dykes to Watch Out For, Ocean’s 8, and/or The Net, this podcast will also be your kind of adventure, though not as obviously.

This podcast pairs well with knitting, long car rides, tasty beverages and snacks, and either headphones or a stereo listening environment. It’s not intended for children. There is occasional panning in the first episode that may make some audiences dizzy, so grab a comfy seat. You can listen to Jarnsaxa Rising wherever you get fine podcasts.
