Bonus: Today In True Crime - Zodiac Killer

Introducing: MYTHICAL MONSTERS, Vanessa's new show!

The great heroes of myth are known throughout the world. Their deeds are legendary. But what would these champions be without obstacles in their path? Dragons, sea serpents, giants, demons...they aren't merely foils to the hero. They are primal symbols reflecting ancient truths. Our new podcast, MYTHICAL MONSTERS, tells the stories of these beasts and asks what they represent to mankind. In this episode, we look at the legendary Kraken! To listen to the rest of this episode subscribe to MYTHICAL MONSTERS on Spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts!

Pinocchio

The original 1883, Italian version of Pinocchio is far darker than the version modern audiences are acquainted with. Pinnochio is pathologically selfish, and the world he inhabits is full of villains. Murderous circus owners, thieving woodland creatures, and a guilt-trip inducing Blue Fairy all cross his path.
