Episode 416: They’re Gonna Have Their Lifeforms Fight

October 9th, 2020 | Robin

An all-request episode kicks off in the Gaming Hut as Dicegeeks asks us how to incorporate the Fossil Showman Albert Koch and his Missouri Leviathan into a game.

We jump some bulls on our way into the Archaeology Hut, where Jake B wants to know about a maker of Minoan seals from the town of Zakros around 1500 BCE.

Brian Malcolm impels us to dust off the Politics Hut for tips on getting along across partisan boundaries.

Finally Elias Helfer trudges with us up the cobwebbed stairs to the parlor of the Consulting Occultist for a look at iconic Tarot deck illustrator Pamela Colman Smith.

    I don’t know about other museums, but I’m sure that I’ve seen actual wax imprints from Mesopotamian cylinder seals in the Fitzwilliam here in Cambridge. I guess it depends how robust the curator thinks the stone of the seal looks.

    And maybe I’m too cynical, but when I hear that the most popular figure in a particular body of art involves large-breasted females, I don’t bother wondering much about why…
