Gods Gone Wild: “Loki” and Our Love of Taboo

Hi friends! On this episode, we are burdened with the glorious purpose of discussing the MCU series Loki on Disney+. We talk about the ships and representation (or lack thereof) on the show, and use it as a springboard to talk about taboo in romance, with some more colorful Norse mythology thrown in. As we discuss in the episode, taboos are super personal, and triggers are as well. So please note that we’re going to touch on all sorts of touchy subjects, so if you want to skip this episode or bow out after the shipping discussions, we understand and support you knowing what’s best for you. With that being said, we’ve listed everything we’ve talked about, so if you’d like to do any research into the books we discuss, we hope it’ll be helpful. And this is kind of a “duh” thing, but this episode is probably even more NSFW than our usual content. Without further ado, spoilers ahead. Excelsior!
