The "Starry Time" podcast, hosted by sisters Jordan and Kit, melds a passion for astronomy with a fascination for mythology. The show delves into the intricate stories and celestial wonders of various constellations, often blending scientific and mythological narratives. Each episode typically focuses on a specific constellation or celestial phenomenon, exploring its cultural, historical, and scientific significance.

A recurring theme across episodes is the reinterpretation and retelling of myths associated with constellations. Jordan and Kit frequently engage in creative ret-conning, where they modify and update classic tales, offering fresh perspectives on ancient narratives such as those of Theseus, Ariadne, and the Minotaur. Alongside reworking myths, the podcast discusses the appearances of these mythological figures and constellations in modern pop culture. By examining both well-known and obscure references in film, television, and literature, the hosts explore how these ancient stories continue to resonate today.

In addition to mythological and cultural discussions, the podcast delves into the astronomical aspects of constellations. Episodes routinely feature in-depth explorations of the stars that comprise each constellation, their positions in the sky, and other celestial phenomena. Technical discussions often include topics like star types, variable stars, and notable astronomical discoveries related to these star patterns.

Another distinctive feature of the podcast is its "Creature Corner" segments, which investigate the biological and mythological significance of animals associated with the constellations. These segments provide listeners with an engaging blend of mythology, science, and fun facts about creatures from goats to scorpions.

Overall, "Starry Time" offers a rich tapestry of content that bridges the gap between scientific inquiry and storytelling. Whether discussing the retelling of myths, the portrayal of constellations in pop culture, or the intricate details of celestial mechanics, the podcast promises a multifaceted exploration of the night sky.
