If Gaiman decides to start a TRpost channel to talk about myths and history I would definitely watch that.

I know this isn't entirely uncommon with authors, but I've always loved how much Neil Gaiman feels like a Neil Gaiman character.

He seems like the younger, nerdier, slightly crazy brother of Alan Rickman 😂

It's nice to see mr. Gaiman talk about Death as being kind. His friend (and occasional co-author) Terry Pratchett wrote about death in the same way.

I want Neil Gaiman, Rick Riordan and Stephen Fry all in one room discussing myths and mythology.

"the frost Giants come out" good for them. It's always a tough thing to do and can be scary, but I'm proud of them and accept them for who they are

You know it’s gonna be great when he says “unless it’s a furry Minotaur” and then specified that this is going to be great

I love how Gaiman shamelessly checks his cheat sheet throughout the labours 😂.

Just want to add that there is a cat-headed goddess in Egyptian mythology: Bastet. Also, Anubis is the god of embalming and cemeteries, and jackals were associated with death, hence Anubis being the patron deity of jackals and depicted with a jackal head.

To the question about Zeus: In "The Golden Fleece" by Robert Graves, he explains in the prologue that the Greek mythology used to consist of many small religions, because each separate island and region had their own gods. When Greece got united under the same language, these smaller religions had to be united as well. The mythology became a kind of melting pot, where the main pantheon - with Zeus at the head - had to be above everyone else. The easiest way of doing that was that Zeus became the literal father of many of the smaller gods - which was explained by him sleeping with as many gods, nymphs and humans (etc.) as possible.

Conversations with Gaiman would start off very interesting and end with him giving me an existential crisis, such good story telling

The first one took me completely by surprise! Odin/Woden, the Journeyman; Mercury/Hermes, the patron of travelers-makes total sense. Thanks for the tidbits, Neil. It’s always a joy to experience stories with you.

Neil Gaiman could read me my groceries list and I would still feel like he's reading us a story for the ages

If Neil ever goes into acting, he'd make a great Doctor on Doctor Who (btw, one of my favorite episodes was written by Neil).

I love Gaiman’s book about Norse Mythology and I would kill for him to do other mythology books like Egypt and Greek.

Amazing video. I have ALWAYS pondered that Pandora's box ending, and whether it was a final cruel joke to have meaningless hope or if it was a good thing like a final defense against the dark. I'm so happy my favorite author came to the same conclusion.

Odin actually kind of tricked mímir when trading for wisdom. He plucked out his eye and threw it into the well of wisdom in exchange for a sip of the water. Little did mímir know that Odin would be able to look into the waters for guidance with the eye he traded.

Not joking. I need this on regular basis. Neil Gaiman explaining things about Mythology is just perfection.
