The dark continent and the chaos dragon of doom!

A teen robotics team from Burundi disappeared in Washington, D.C. this week. Since 1998, millions have died in African wars we rarely hear about in the West.

We discuss territorial spirits, ancient myths of gods battling dragons, why Thor swings a hammer instead of a sword, and Derek explains that Dagon (actually spelled Dagan) is NOT a fish-god.
