Under your Bed: The Need for Monsters

Inspired by a recent watch of Godzilla vs. King Kong I explore the notion of monsters and monster myth through history.

Why do we create monsters? What do they represent? And why do some of them endure through the ages?

We Lack Discipline Preaches: Genesis (Ch. 6-11)

We cover the events of Noah’s Ark and the Great Flood, all the way up to the Tower of Babel and Abram and Sarai leaving for Canaan.

Celestial Classics: Pluto and Orpheus

Exploring the far-off dwarf planet, and trans-neptunian object, Pluto as both a planet and the mythological God of the Underworld. Included is a discussion about Orpheus, both the legendary poet and musician of ancient Greece and asteroid 3361 Orpheus, a Near-Earth asteroid designated as a Potentially Hazardous Asteroid. Exploring themes of death, rebirth, katabasis, eschatology and all sorts of other lovely stuff along the way we come to the ultimate conclusion. Pluto is all about love.
