This week on MYTH, we’ll trek into the endless desert in search of 1001 Arabian nights. This would roughly be the right time to belt out the opening song to Disney’s Aladdin, if you like. Instead of Agrabah, though, we’ll be searching for the Lost City of Brass. You’ll discover that people lie for the dumbest reasons, why genies are trapped in bottles, and that you can totally trust evil creatures trapped in stone forever by Allah. Then, in Gods and Monsters, it’s the shape-shifting, corpse-eating monster that’s extremely hard to kill but surprisingly easy to resurrect. This episode is the first part of the search for the City of Brass, one of the stories from the 1001 Nights.
