Loki is less than a week away! To kick off our preview week, Storycast unearths tricksters — and trickster gods — that have appeared in art from ancient times through the streaming era. What makes them tricksters, exactly? Who are the best tricksters? Who are some famous characters that we might not think of as tricksters but most definitely are?

We also discuss how Loki fits into the archetype, and whether the Loki from Avengers makes as much sense as we think he does.

Join Amanda Marcotte, Maeve Adams, and Marc Faletti as we sneak through literature and film to find the tricksters hiding in plain sight!
