Season 18 Episode 2: The Frost Giant's Daughter


"The clangor of the swords had died away, the shouting of the slaughter was hushed; silence lay on the red-stained snow. The bleak pale sun that glittered so blindingly from the ice-fields and the snow-covered plains struck sheens of silver from rent corselet and broken blade, where the dead lay as they had fallen. The nerveless hand yet gripped the broken hilt; helmeted heads back-drawn in the death-throes, tilted red beards and golden beards grimly upward, as if in last invocation to Ymir the frost-giant, god of a warrior race."

Here we are, on the Road of Kings, and things have taken an icy turn. The Cromcast goes back in time to an earlier adventure with Conan in the frozen lands of the north as we analyze "The Frost Giant's Daughter". This is an epic and mythical feeling story but also one that contains unsettling material which we try to unpack. Join us won't you, for a trip to the land of Ymir!
