Come along as we follow Odysseus on his ultimate journey—a trip to the LAND OF THE DEAD (cue screeching violins or maybe even Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”). WATCH as our hero cowers from the ghosts of epics past as they swarm like moths to the blood filled pit! WONDER what Elpenor is doing here when he was just eating nachos on Circe’s veranda a second ago! LISTEN to Tiresias’ weird prophecy and Dave’s master class on wheat/chaff separation! WEEP when Odysseus encounters his mother Anticleia’s shade and attempts in vain to embrace her! SEARCH the pantry for some Huggable Portions™ (new from Nabisco!) to stave off that 2nd half of the podcast hunger! Or just tune in—this is good stuff.

Getting back into the Odyssey with the stories of Telemachus, Menelaus, and Orestes.

We meet again with Alexander leaving Egypt and marching to meet Darius to decide who the ultimate ruler of Persia would be. Alexander encounters the riches of the Persia empire and it seems that he begins to loose control of some of his darker impulses. Tune in the learn more about the exciting tale of Alexander the Great!
