Mainly associated with war and fate, the Morrígan is a goddess from Irish mythology that often appears as a crow. She is responsible for the outcome of battles.
The Cailleach is a hag goddess in Scottish mythology. She is referred to as the Queen of Winter. She rules the days between Samhain (October 31st) and Beltane (May 1st)
Odin is the All-Father of Norse mythology. He is associated with wisdom, healing, death, royalty, the gallows, knowledge, battle, sorcery, poetry, frenzy, and the runic alphabet. He has two crows: Huginn (‘thought’) and Muninn (‘memory’), that fly over the world and bring him information.
Coatlicue is the Aztec goddess that gave birth to the moon and stars.
When Arantza asks: ‘Is it the video?’ she is referencing a video I (Ale) shot near Aviemore in the Cairgorms. What was weird about it was that there was a ‘voice’ in it (not mine) and there was no one around. It could be anything though, so pinch of salt.
‘Luigi Board?’ is a reference to one of the funniest videos on the internet.
What Arantza whispered is ‘Damnatio Memoriae’. This is a Latin phrase that means ‘Condemnation of Memory’. Ancient Romans practiced it when they sought to wipe the memory of a particularly hated individual. Most famously applied to multiple Roman emperors including Domitian, Elagabalus, Geta, and Commodus.

This website is good for a brief rundown of different astrological signs and their characteristics.
Ale does mean the ellipsis of the sun around the earth. No, she is not a geocentrist living before Copernicus. She is making reference to the way the sun could seem to move around the earth.

‘When I was in Fife Walking’: Ale hiked part (35km) of the Fife Coastal Path, a trail that skirts the length of the Fife Coastline.
The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer-Bradley is a feminist retelling of the Legend of King Arthur. It is great.
Arthur’s Seat is the extinct volcano that comprises most of Edinburgh’s Holyrood Park.
The saying regarding writing dissertations is: ‘don’t study what you love.’ Theoretically the process of writing a dissertation is so exhausting that you end up hating your topic regardless of how much you liked it at first.
Yggdrasil is the Tree of Life in Norse Mythology, it connects the nine worlds.
Ride That Wave: The mantra we had. We have since revised it. We don’t like the idea of forcing yourself to ride a wave that makes you uncomfortable. Don’t ride other people’s waves because you hope it will become comfortable over time or they’ll like you better. Ride YOUR wave.
Your hosts (Ale and Arantza for the ease of English-speakers) are two flatmates going into their last university year. After at least two years of talking about lacking a space we could freely discuss the things we are knowledgeable about or passionate and interested in, we’ve decided to finally create that space ourselves- hence, the kitchen floor podcast.
The best way we can describe what listening to this podcast will be like is saying you will be listening in on our conversations, the good, the smart, the very very dumb. So if you’ve ever wanted to know what girls talk about when they’re alone, or you’d like to know what it’s like to have a friend you can talk to about pretty much everything, this is the right spot for you.
We’d love you to come along on this, very stereotypically, journey to find ourselves. Stick around, you just might fall in love with one of us ;)
Welcome to the kitchen floor!
