37-Hercules: The Best at What He Does

Hercules is as terrible as he is awesome. In this episode there are sea monsters, centaurs, people being thrown off of things, Hydra poison, and Hercules making ridiculous choices. Basically, it's everything you could want from a Hercules episode. Oh, and he dies, because apparently he can do that.

The creature this time is the Mamagwasewug, and he just wants to borrow a smoke...or he'll burn your house down.

    I love this show but does anyone think it’s funny that Hercules was killed by both the Hydra and the centaur ( idk how to spell his name) while they were both dead.

    Dude I love the Greek and Roman related myths. Always been a fan. Also I recently caught up on the show and it’s like my favorite podcast! My favorite episode so far has been the Psyche/Cupid story. Have you read ‘Till We Have Faces’ by C.S. Lewis? It’s a retelling of that myth from the perspective of Psyches sister. I’m in the process of reading it.. Also I love it when you recommend books to read.. Ordered ‘The Once and Future King’ after I listened to the Arthurian ones. Anyways, love this episode, love this podcast.

      Thanks! I need to read “Till We Have Faces” – I’m a big C.S. Lewis fan…and a mythology fan. I’m surprised I somehow missed that.
