GSG 2010.2 - Percy Jackson!

Kind of building off the Alien Hybrid episode, today we talk about surviving being a demigod of some sort. I mean, sure you've got at least one divine parent, but it's not like they're hanging out to read you bedtime stories. And they're always sending you on errands. Deadly errands! Today's ep talks about The Lightning Thief, a pretty good yarn. There are also shoutouts to Clash of the Titans, the Odyssey, and Jason and the Argonauts.

Next week, we talk Dragons! Specifically, His Majesty's Dragon, by Naomi Novik. Until then, hey, do a little reading, why doncha?

UPDATE: I got word pretty quickly that the audio levels weren't right. I've re-mixed and reloaded the file, but it may take a little while for Libsyn to reflect the changes. If you can't hear me over the music, first, I totally apologize. And second, give it about an hour, and libsyn should have a corrected file.

Thanks! and Enjoy!

HI! My spouse and I really enjoy your podcast, but have you ever listened to them before you release them? You choice of music is neat and all, but I thought background music was supposed to be, you know, in the background; not drowning out your voice, the sole reason we download your podcast.

Keep up the good work!

Yikes! Thanks for the heads up. I had thought it was down enough, but giving it another listen, I see that I totally needed to turn down the music more. I'm remixing, and a replacement file has been uploaded - but Libsyn says it can take up to an hour for the file to be replaced through their system. I appreciate you letting me know about the problem and your patience while I get it fixed.
