Jarnsaxa brings Nikea’s viral weapon back to the Hei Shui corporation, but must continue posing as Agent Bachman and develop diplomatic skills, when The Interviewer gives her a risky invitation. Loki finds Jasper, and lands in the tightest vise he can imagine: the role of a devoted father. Eric and Sif go to Hel, find the trapped Scandia Energy workers from Sottunga, and Agent Bachman adds to the greater mystery. What could Hel want from Sif? Why are the voices of Stephanie, The Interviewer and SoloMom so compelling to Loki and Jarnsaxa?

The transcript for Episode 4 is available here.

More new art for Season 2 of Jarnsaxa Rising!

Have you seen Sif and Eric yet?

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?

Audio Drama Sunday!

Ills bu Arthur Rackham, 1910

All episodes of Season 1 of Jarnsaxa Rising are available for your Audio Drama Sunday listening pleasure. Listen now on iTunesPocketCasts, or whatever your preferred purveyor of pod entertainment may be.

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.

Thrym King of JotunheimThrym, King of Jotumheim, says that audio drama pairs well with knitting. Whatever you’re up to today, make it dramatic.
