Olympias

I just finished the episode “glimpses of olympias” and I’ve got to say I’m in aww of the amount of research and effort put into this episode. I’ve always heard of the tale of Alexander the Great, and was aware he had a mother. I never knew about the prominent role she played during this time period. The tenacity and drive this woman had is inspiring. When you went into detail on how she channeled Dionysus in the battle against Adea Eurydice gave me literal chills. I have to say though, Nicholas cage as Alexander?? That I cannot wrap my head around. None the less fantastic episode!!

Max Brooks episode

His comment and bowls that white supremacy is bubbling up a possible civil warfare is ridiculous. I’ve been in public safety for more than 25 years and involved in fighting terrorism. The federal government is pushing that political agenda with no evidence provided to local government. Brooks view is goofy and should have been called out at political fiction.
