We took the road less traveled by...but we just couldn't cut it!! This week, special guest Lucas Brown (@lokified) joins us to talk about The Path Not Taken, aka: 'Gyna on the Roof, aka The Princess Bride But Boring, an episode of Xena Warrior Princess that must have been a spec script that they just... felt like shooting, for some reason.  There's a sex joke in the first minute, though. Also, Allison had to cut about an hour of her ranting about a certain figure skating anime from this episode so as not to give you three hours of content to listen to, oh boy.

Be sure to keep listening after our sign-off for a special segment, courtesy of Lucas Brown. On his podcast, The Math of You, he creates cocktails inspired by his guests. He blessed us with not one but TWO cocktails inspired by the episode of Xena we all discussed together. Recipes are as follows:

The Red-Headed Bard

Sweet, bubbly and always ready for adventure, and befits the Battling Bard of Potidaea.

  • 1/2oz vodka
  • 1/2oz ouzo
  • 1oz creme de cassis
  • 2oz lemon-lime soda

Combine vodka, ouzo and cassis in a shaker of ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a cocktail glass and top up with lemon-lime soda.

B-Side: The Argo

Kicks like a goddamn horse. Keep it handy if you need to blow fire at someone to make them give up.

  • 1oz vodka
  • 1oz brandy
  • 1oz bourbon
  • 1/2oz ouzo
  • 1oz orange juice
  • 2oz lemon-lime soda

Combine orange juice, vodka, brandy, bourbon and ouzo in a shaker of ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a cocktail glass and top up with lemon-lime soda. Consume... carefully.

This week, special guest Elisabeth Dubois (@elisedubois) joins us to talk about Cradle of Hope, an episode that is shockingly not about the baby Gabrielle's going to have with a Lovecraftian Elder God in season 3. Uh, spoiler warning, I guess? Instead, we get a half-assed take on the Secret Origin of Moses, with Pandora and her box thrown in for good measure.

Plus, we debut a new segment: "The Dan Scrolls," in which former guest Dan Cassino (@dancassino) tells us all about the actual history and mythology that Xena brushes up against, none of which actually appears in the episode.
