Our third guest interview. Kyle Kuypers is a friend/co-worker of Shawn and a generally eclectic individual who is passionate about Mythology, Story Telling, Dungeons & Dragons, and he co-hosts a fan podcast about the TV series Vanderpump Rules.

We talk about Hero’s Journey, the flawed, “very human” Norse Gods. Kyle explains the history of Dungeons & Dragons, the table top role playing game which combines board gaming, war gaming, and story telling, along with its creator, Gary Gygax. How does Role Playing a character or leading a group of players compare to composing and performing Norse Skaldic Poetry? How would a character like Loki play out in a game of D&D?
Kyle/Shawn at the end accomplish the impossible and make a very loose connection on the subject matter of both podcasts, Vanderpump Rules and Norse Mythology, in what can be considered the win of the century so far for both of them.

It’s a fun conversation and a topic we might have to come back to again. Ways to tell modern stories and how Norse Mythology can inspire creativity.
