We’re suggesting a new title for Jason and the Argonauts—really, it should be Medea and the Himbos. This week’s movie is the 1963 edition of Jason and the Argonauts, followed by a deep dive into the original Greek telling (thanks, Edith Hamilton!).

Content Warning: This episode contains conversations about or mentions of child endangerment/murder (there’s a lot of this), drowning, starvation, death, dismemberment, grief, poisoning, and fire/burning.
