Her hair’s shorn (if you’ve heard Season 1, you recall that unfortunate incident), and she’s on a journey. She’s reluctantly agreed to bring Eric along, since they have a common wound from Loki’s trickery. But where is their next stop? And who’s chasing them?
Episode 1, We Who Contain Multitudes: In September of 1944, Jarnsaxa wakes in her witch bottle on the island of Sottunga. A plane crashes, bringing strangers to her realm. Will they free her? What are their intentions? Are humans worth her loyalty?
Episode 2, Only The Best & Brightest: Jarnsaxa and Loki infiltrate The Hei Shui Corporation, using the bodies of Bachman and Eric. Familiar voices distract them from their mission. Eric wakes in the Land of the Dwarves and meets Sif, only to risk making an enemy of her. Thor prepares for another of Odin’s murderous errands, and Heimdall demands answers.
You might notice that the Season 1 podcast feed disappears and reappears today. Nothing to worry about (knock wood). We’re doing a little bit of housekeeping, and getting our RSS feed ready for Season 2.
In the meantime, you can subscribe to this blog for updates, and follow us on Twitter or Facebook (just search for Jarnsaxa Rising), so you’l be able to get the story as soon as we launch.
As we’re getting ready for Season 2, Google decided to finally inform us that nine months ago, Matt Durkin of Matt Versus Audio Drama posted a review of Jarnsaxa Rising on his YouTube Channel.
This blows my mind. I only started following Matt a few months ago, but I’m hooked. His YouTube channel is utterly charming, sort of like wandering onto the front porch of the home of a graduate school professor and catching him between cups of strong coffee and scribbling thoughts in a stack of several interconnected notebooks. I had no idea that Jarnsaxa came up on his radar.
In any case, after watching this, I’m definitely subscribing to Mirth Defect. Thank you for putting wind in our sails, Matt! Reviews are for podcasters what any noises an audience makes are for actors.
Work continues on Season 2. We have recorded A Feast in Niflhel, and many surprises are on their way. We can’t wait to get Jarnsaxa’s saga in your ears.
Season 2 of Jarnsaxa Rising is coming. It’s recorded, we’re working on editing, and you should expect to see a lot of new things here soon.

How many people work 9-5, Monday through Friday jobs? How many people see Sunday as the day of last-ditch effort, to get a few things accomplished for themselves, maybe stir their imagination a bit, before returning to the weekly grind?
Audio Drama lets you do both. Pop in your earbuds, or crank up the G-Boom, and you can have as much action, adventure, romance, comedy and joy as you can with hours of Netflix or Hulu, but without the sitting on your butt that can cause sciatica.
