Part Two: Ptolemy Soter

Monday May 13, 2024

Monday May 13, 2024


Part 2 of Ptolemy's story gives us more of everything we love about the Hellenistic World! More dead bodies, more shenanigans, more polygamy, more children, more trash talking, plus some interesting facts about beavers that we can only hope are not true. Also, did Dustin get Meredith tacos?

Interview with Alex Lyras

Saturday Apr 13, 2024

Saturday Apr 13, 2024


While we're all waiting for Ptolemy pt. 2, Dustin had the chance to sit down with actor, writer, and producer Alex Lyras and discuss his new play, "Aristotle/Alexander." Want to hear discussions of ancient and modern political thought? How about ancient gender and sexuality? Maybe even philosophical shenanigans? Or Dustin saying "wonderful" and "indeed" over and over. If the answer to even one of those questions is "yes," then this episode's for you!

Part One: Ptolemy Soter

Saturday Mar 23, 2024

Saturday Mar 23, 2024

As David Lee Roth once said, "It's not whether you win or lose, it's how good you looked doing it!" Actually his dad said that, but we're pretty sure he learned it from Ptolemy! This guy  is the wizard behind the curtain, even if we have no wizards and no curtains. Plus, he'll really teach you how to beef up your résumé. Come hear part one of the story of Ptolemy Soter!

Valentine's Day is all about being with that special person in your life. But if you're Demetrius, then it's the special four, five, or even six people in your life; that is, until your own people defect to some rando and kick you out of your own country because they hate you and then you have to go back on the run and get lost in Asia until your get captured by your own stepson (who's old enough to be your dad). Yeah... Demetrius had a good life... Oh and now we sell perfume... or cologne... or something.
