    I read Sara Gay Forden's book, "House of Gucci," so you don't have to. It's the story of how Aldo, Rodolfo and Maurizio Gucci built Guccio Gucci's business into an internationally-respected brand and produced iconic fashion and fashion designers like Tom Ford and how Patrizia Reggiani Martinelli Gucci became the symbol of its undoing. House of Gucci has been adapted into a movie directed by Ridley Scott and starring Adam Driver, Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, Salma Hayek and Lady Gaga.

    RJ and Tyler talk about how The Matrix film franchise owes so much of its inspiration to Frank Herbert's 1965 novel "Dune." They compare characters -- Neo is Paul Atriedes, duh -- and themes that overlap between the two properties as well as what Herbert was actually writing about: his distrust of superheroes, fascism, demagogues and dictators.

    Act one, perhaps the best known myth about Loki which involves the creation of Thor's hammer and dwarves nearly chopping off the god of mischief's head for being, well, mischievous and an arrogant prat. Samuel Thompson https://digitalcommons.law.yale.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1436&context=yjlh Sif's haircut and Thor's hammer https://norse-mythology.org/tales/loki-and-the-dwarves/ In the second segment, a character study about Loki in the ancient storytelling tradition of the trickster, courtesy an aggressively aggregated Smithsonian I found clicking links in another aggressively aggregated blog post. The Trickster https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smithsonian-institution/folklorist-explains-lokis-place-pantheon-trickster-heroes-180977935/ Act three, a discussion with my best friend Tyler about the hit TV show "Loki," a genocidal god with an apparent heart of gold. Yes, it's oxymoronic, but that's where the good stuff is. "I think that you could argue that the journey of the season for him is about Loki becoming a hero in a lot of ways, and what's more heroic than doing the right thing for the right reasons and losing anyways? Suddenly, he's in the position that Steve Rogers found himself in after Infinity War, which is really compelling." —Michael Waldron https://www.cbr.com/loki-writer-compares-captain-america-similar/ "I think it's when Alligator Loki ate President Loki's hand that I realized I was in love." --Variety "The Loki finale proves Marvel TV shows are already in a rut. The series remade a charming villain as a dull, passive hero." --Slate
