Ah, the myth that launched a thousand ships. The apple thrown into the middle of a greek banquet would ruin lives and lay waste to entire kingdoms. We set the stage for Helen and Paris, two lovers who were not meant to be, and why so many kingdoms would unite to keep the two of them apart. Agamemnon, Achilles, Paris, Odysseus, and fair Helen are all here, and a war is about to begin.

Join us on Patreon and vote on topics for EH! bit.ly/EHPatreon Winston Churchill is convinced that his Cairo Conference has solved all of the problems of the Middle East but he is going to be proven wrong. The British find themselves trapped between two allies who will not stop fighting. The Balfour Declaration makes everything... tricky. Thousands of lives are lost in various uprisings and brutal retaliations. And the kingdom of Saudi Arabia emerges. It's not a conclusion so much as an endpoint for how our modern maps look.

And this particular tournament will go down in history as one of the most lavish and expansive affairs as a way to broker peace between Henry the VIII of England and Francis I of France. The two kings were locked in a bitter rivalry and were determined to outshine (and outspend) the other.

Once there was a land beset by a dragon. The dragon breathed noxious fumes that poisoned the water and the countryside. To try and appease the dragon, the city paid it tribute in the form of farm animals, but those quickly ran out. They were left with no choice but to sacrifice village members to the dragon. But along came a mythic knight named George with a crazy idea: What if we killed the dragon instead?

It wouldn't be long before Ibn Battuta was back on the road, fleeing a new foe. This one microscopic in size but larger than anything he has yet to face: the Black Plague.

But now that tech is bigger and more expensive to use, is that slash and burn mentality always a great idea? Is asset reuse in games an example of laziness or cut corners, or is it a useful tool in a game designer's toolbox?

But there are a lot of ways that the gaming industry is still geared towards people with more extroverted tendencies. Networking events that involve large crowds, brainstorming sessions that require immediate responses, and deferring to the loudest voice are all ways that unintentionally make working harder for introverts. So how do we help create spaces in business to help everyone have a voice? Guest writer Renato Pelizzari is here to help answer that question.

The revolution kicks off with such strength and ferocity, the French leaders in charge couldn't believe that slaves had planned and executed the revolt. The Big Whites, Little Whites, and Free People of Color all began infighting. Meanwhile, Haiti's plantations and mills were quickly engulfed by flames as the uprising moved across the island. But as the Revolution began to claim lives and leaders, the formerly enslaved people found that they were not immune to infighting either. But amidst the swelling chaos, new leaders rose. Key figures like Toussaint Louverture.

With graphics that age quickly, cartridges and game systems that can be elusive to find, and so many new games coming out every week, it can be hard to understand why anyone should have to go diving through the primordial ooze of games from yesteryear. But if you're looking to get into game design, there's a lot of reasons you should try to twist your hands to fit a N64 controller. Even if newer games copy a particular formula and genre, you should try to dig into the roots of what makes that series good or popular.

The daughter of anthropologists, Le Guin's family frequently had famous academics and scientists over, and they deeply influenced her writing like her first science fiction novel, The Left Hand of Darkness.

The Haitian Revolution is a unique historical event in many ways. It was both an offshoot of the French Revolution, but also an anti-colonialist revolution. It was also the second American nation to successfully win its independence. But before we can talk about the Revolution itself, we have to talk about how influential Haiti was to France's economy and how it's complicated social structure primed it for revolt and revolution. Because here, in the colony built upon the countless bodies of the enslaved, sugar is king. But not for long.

With the help of folks like you, they can continue to improve the lives of children in hospitals and domestic violence shelters through the power of play and the generosity of the gaming community. So if you're able, please donate towards this amazing cause and help make some difficult days for children a little brighter. Our final story also comes from C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital ( victors.us/streamformott ) Jacob was born with primary ciliary dyskinesia which means spending an hour every day receiving treatment to help prevent lung infections. During those treatments, Jacob was able to help pass the time by playing games. But when a tumor was found in Jacob's kidney, he had to stay at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. The week leading up to surgery was long, boring, and isolating. But the Child Life Specialists at the hospital changed all of that by visiting with toys and games. Games that gave Jacob something to look forward to and helped give Jacob hope.

An anthology helmed and edited by Ellison, Dangerous Visions featured short stories written by many sci fi household names like Roger Zelazny & Samuel R. Delany. But most importantly, it introduced human sexuality to sci fi in a way we hadn't seen before. It also questioned the taboo, like addressing religion or death. Not all of the stories are winners, but all of them give you something to think about.

Policing London - His Majesty King Mob - Extra History - #4
Policing London - His Majesty King Mob - Extra History - #4

John Fielding, Henry Fielding's brother, took over the Bow Street Runners after his brother's death. He was well known as a man who could identify over 3,000 criminals by voice alone. After all, he was blind. But his real contribution to policing was his organizational skills. He created the first Central Database of stolen goods and suspect descriptions and published papers that included not only London criminals but also descriptions of criminals wanted by other prisons in the country. And while the courts may have loved him, the public was much more skeptical. These were times marked by distrust in authority and having a criminal database seemed like an intrusion on personal liberty. What was required to change public opinion?

If you live in Minnesota, learn more at freechildcheckups.com and GetCTC.com. If you don’t, check here: www.medicaid.gov/medicaid/benefits/epsdt/index.html. Vaccines have been instrumental in our modern view of health and healthcare. But they haven't always been around and there's been more than some misinformation on what they are and how they work. So how did we even discover vaccines in the first place? It started with a disease that had plagued humanity for so long, it seemed like it was just a natural part of living. But thanks to the work of Edward Jenner, soon smallpox would become a disease known only to history. One of two diseases that humanity had managed to completely eradicate and all thanks to vaccines and vaccination.

Dick is well known in the sci fi genre for his work "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?", the story that inspired Bladerunner. He struggled often from mental illness and depression and had a uniquely weird childhood experience that led him to question the very fabric of his reality. A common theme of Philip K. Dick's work is the presence of doppelgangers or copies who can't tell who the original is. And this unraveling of reality or treatment of reality as fluid is a huge influence on the New Wave.

Henry Fielding was a dangerous man... with a pen. He had a razor-sharp wit and created the page-turner novel, but that's not what we want to focus on here. Because Henry Fielding is also responsible for assembling London's first organized police force. The Bow Street Runners were inspired by Wilde's operation just... not corrupt. But Fielding quickly found that in London's justice system, corruption was the assumed default, not the exception. He certainly had his work cut out for him!

Jonathan Wild had the whole crime system figured out. A man of justice by day, and leader of a criminal empire by night. But that is when Jack Sheppard came into his life. Jack Sheppard was a talented thief but an even more talented escape artist. And one of the last criminals in London who refused to bend the knee to Jonathan Wild. This was unacceptable. Jonathan Wild became obsessed. But obsessions can be dangerous. Every prison escape causes Sheppard's popularity amongst the people, sick and tired of corruption, to grow. And the consequences may be deadly.

Thanks to .SITE for sponsoring this video. Find your perfect domain name here bit.ly/EC_Site , and use the code "extracredits" at checkout to get 50% off your purchase. It's important to give credit where credit is due, but doing so might be trickier than some people might realize. Games take a long time to create and people may come and go on a project or be moved around to different departments. And the lead artist in one studio might not do the same tasks as a lead artist in another studio. This all makes credits very complicated! But that doesn't mean we can give up on credits either. Credits should not be "extra". And speaking of credits, thanks to Kayla Heidenreich for the guest art this week!

Hercules (or Herakles in the Greek) needed to atone for killing his entire family so the gods did what the gods do best and gave him a quest: serve his cousin for 12 years. Shouldn't be too difficult. But his cousin was a terrible DM and created 10 impossible tasks for Hercules to complete. This first part covers the first five of the Herculian tasks (and some of the sick treasures Hercules uncovers along the way) Join the Extra Mythology Patreon! www.patreon.com/extramythology Learn all about our shows at becauselearningmatters.com ___________ Thanks for participating in this week's discussion!

Join us on Patreon! bit.ly/EHPatreon A revolutionary dreamer or a tyrannical despot? That is a question at the heart of Akhenaten's rule, a pharaoh so unusual, that his successors tried and almost successfully erased him from the historical records. You may know his more famous wife, Queen Nefertiti but Akhenaten was a fascinating ruler. He went against the grain of almost all of Egyptian traditions including trying to establish a monotheistic religion and unite the kingdom Upper and Lower Kingdoms of Egypt.

The Berlin Wall has become a symbol of the Cold War. It encircled West Berlin, separating it from the Soviet-controlled East Berlin, placed to try and stop the flood of skilled professionals leaving to the West. Multiple US presidents had penned speeches about tearing down the wall, to no effect. But the Wall did fall. As the USSR underwent massive reforms and the Velvet Revolution was underway, East Germany was undergoing its own reform. And one clerical oversight in a press conference will destroy the Wall for good.

That didn't stop the European visitors from trying to invent all kinds of stories for how this city could possibly exist, and stealing parts of the temple to bring back home.

Join us on Patreon! bit.ly/EHPatreon Let's lay down the foundations for one of the architectural marvels of the ancient world: At its height, the city of Angkor was, by several measures, the largest city of the medieval era. With a million people and a footprint larger than modern-day New York, it was arguably the world’s largest pre-industrial city. And at its center lay the magnificent Angkor Wat.

That is not the version I'm familiar with In the version I was taught, Helen of Troy is kidnapped and doesn't fall in love, and Agamemnon taking the woman from Achilles is what makes Achilles pissed enough to stop fighting, which leads Patroclus to don Achilles armor etc. To be fair there's a ton of minor variations in different versions

"A Song of Achilles" by Madelline Albright has a wonderful interpretation of the "Suitors of Helen" story, where its implied the whole affair was rigged by Odysseus and the King of Sparta so that no blodshed would come from the affair. Odysseus then got to marry Helen's cousin Penelope, as a reward.

I feel no remorse for all the people killed by wars. We humans can choose not to fight, yet we continue to do so. We are completely and utterly flawed as a species. We SHOULD NOT be on this planet. Do you see any other creatures fighting large scale wars between their species like you do with man? No, you don't. All who are killed by wars, whether soldier or civilian, no remorse. People choose to fight, and so they choose to die.

Granted, what I'm going to propose is not myth related, but I was wondering if you were taking any suggestions for themes? If you were, for history I thought of Jadwiga. I never even knew she existed until I played Civilization. For Mythology, I would say maybe the destruction the the world in Norse mythology. Or you know, Thor dressing up and pretending to be Freyja. That's pretty funny. Lol. Sorry if I have recommended something you guys have already done; I am slowly going through and watching the videos you've already made during quarantine, so I haven't seen them all yet.
