Oooooooh a SPECIAL episode?! We are fancy AF. And we are absolutely DELIGHTED to be joined by the lovely Laura Jenkinson-Brown, the creator behind Greek Myth Comix. If you listened to our last two episodes of Myth Dynamite Season 2 (and if you haven’t … rude) then you will know that Abi and Sarah got a bit … well … mad about Odysseus. Listening back, we felt an external point of view might balance things a bit. That’s where Jenks comes in. Jenks’ knowledge of the Odyssey is DEEP (I mean the nerdy references alone… we can’t even) and it has inspired her comics, merch and even a ‘Choose your own adventure’ book, Odyssey-style (coming out of hiding for the FIRST TIME in this episode!) We planned to chat for 30 mins … we recorded for 2 hours. It was a joy

Ancient history legend Robin Waterfield came on the podcast to talk about the Olympic Games in antiquity. The first of a small miniseries on the ancient site of Olympia. Robin is the author of ‘Olympia: The Story of the Ancient Olympic Games’.
