Episode 43 – Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), with Kara Cooney and Jordan Galczynski

After much ado, we finally tackle the big question: why did it have to be snakes? Joined by Egyptologists and hosts of the Afterlives with Kara Cooney podcast, Kara Cooney and Jordan Galczynski, we uncover Steven Spielberg’s 1981 archaeology-adventure classic, Raiders of the Lost Ark. We talk real vs. fantasy archaeology and the myths and ideals embraced/propagated by Indiana Jones. We also discuss our own personal Belloqs (re: nemesis), where artifacts do(n’t) belong, the relation between government and archaeology and what creatures we wouldn’t want to find while digging. No artifacts were harmed in the making of this podcast.
