This week on MYTH, we’re finally leaving behind the long-winded, zany antics of the Monkey King. We’ll be journeying to an entirely new mythos for this week’s story. This is the story of the Prince and the Sphinx from Egyptian mythology. The original story actually comes from the prince in question, and is one of the few stories with a definitive historical context. In this episode, you’ll learn that your sibling rivalry could have been a whole lot worse, that pretty much everyone is in awe of the great pyramids, and that listening to a statue is a great way to be king. Then, in Gods and Monsters, it’s the story of the fat, scaly mishmash god who might literally eat your heart out.
