Episode 25 – Blood of Zeus (2020) Part I, with Christie Vogler & Zoé Thomas

“Screw your winged horse, I want a Manticore!” We break down the first four episodes of Netflix’s original anime series with repeat guest Christie Vogler and newcomer Zoé Thomas. We dig into the show’s pop cultural influences, its novel takes on mythology and the design choice to make everyone super hot. We also talk at length about Hera’s anger, Zeus’ faults and convenient vases depicting exactly the myth you need to tell. The mention of unmixed wine also really shakes our kraters. Additional questions: Would a similar show set in Rome with as much attention to artistic style feature too many ugly sculpture? How many brains does a three headed dog need? Should we all just play kottabos when we party? We also introduce new literary lens where all stories are actually about Alexander the Great.
