Description:

Tune in to seven stories, two songs, one poem.

Radio Paganistan includes everyone's favorite song about everyone's favorite Yule ogress – "Mother Berhta's Coming to Town." Other stories include The Bride of the Forest (the Brothers Grimm meet the Rite of Spring, in the Great North Woods), The Descent of Anat (take the old Canaanite winter solstice festival, give it a bris, and voila:  Hanuka!). And at last you will know who would win if Mother Berhta and Santa Claus got into a fight.

The two songs Steven sings here are backed up by bass from Drew Miller of Boiled in Lead and percussion from Renée Bracchi of Felonious Bosch.
