Welcome to a Bite Sized episode of Not Another Teen Wolf Podcast, where we take one aspect of the fandom and discuss it in a mini-episode! This time around, Natalie, Karen, and newcomer Jonathan talk about werewolf mythology!
Featured Song: Buffy the Vampire Slayer theme by Nerf Herder
In this episode…
-We talk about traditional werewolf mythology and when the idea of werewolves first started
-Jonathan tells us that a lot of the stereotypical werewolf myths are actually modern inventions
-What’s the canon in Teen Wolf?
-Then we talk about Remus Lupin in Harry Potter, which is a very typical werewolf story
-Next up is Buffy the Vampire Slayer, in which the werewolves actually aren’t talked about a lot
-We mention Twilight next, talk about how Jacob & Co. are actually not werewolves, and how — stay with us here — Stephenie Meyer’s ideas about the mythology in Twilight is actually not so ridiculous
-Lastly, we mention The Vampire Diaries, the mythology of which is actually a little more unique than the others
-Our honorable mentions go out to Being Human (UK), Supernatural, Once Upon a Time, Grimm, and Hemlock Grove
-Which of these fandoms has the most relevance to the traditional myths? Where does Teen Wolf fall in the lineup?
