EPISODE 9: EENSY WEENSY SPIDER GOD
If you’ve been on Twitter lately, chances are that you’ve come across the #amabiechallenge, the hashtag that is taking Japan (and some of the rest of the world) by storm. If not, just know that, as unlikely as it may seem, creatively decorated bento boxes might be the cure to the pandemic. Meanwhile in Africa, the storyteller spider deity Anansi weaves a web of mischief in this week’s episode. Official agents of the Undying Eye will be at your door shortly - stay tuned.
EPISODE 10: WHAT A WICKED GAME
It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt, and in the 1980’s the mysterious arcade game Polybius left its players in fits, nauseous, and sometimes even dead. Also, who were the mysterious men in black that dropped by to service the machines every now and then? Then, did you know that centuries before Edward Cullen emerged in all his bedazzled glory, vampires haunted the ancient world? Whether it be India, Greece, or Ghana, you cannot escape from these sinister blood-drinkers. Consume this podcast within 7 days of opening - you’ve been warned.
EPISODE 8: CASH CROP ME OUTSIDE, HOW BOU DA?
Happy belated Mother's Day! In honour of mothers worldwide, we've chosen two of the most dramatic mothers we could possibly find for today's episode. First up on So You Want To Be A Mother? is Demeter, Goddess of the Harvest and the inventor of helicopter parenting. Find out what happens when her crummy brother gets goo-goo eyes for Demeter's lovely daughter. Then prepare yourself for the first (and last) mother of bunnies, Mary Toft, and her bizarre and not-so-slightly disgusting tail (pun intended). Call your mother, ya creep.
