Happy Halloween! In this Halloween special we delve into the god and goddess of the dead themselves, Hades and Persephone. We also get the low down on where you go when you die, and who you might encounter.
A general mythology warning: far too many Greek myths involve assaulting women. I'm sorry, that's just the way it is. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.
