Happy Holidays, 13 O’Clock listeners! On our sorta Christmasy-themed episode, we’ll be delving into the fascinating world of Biblical mythology, and specifically how the books of Daniel and Revelation may have allegorical, astronomical and astrological underpinnings. Were these books really prophecies of events yet to come, or were they simply fancy mythological retellings of historical happenstances? Put on your ugly Christmas sweater, pour yourself some eggnog, and kick back with your hosts as they jingle all the way into episode 70. Enjoy, and have a safe and happy holiday season out there!

On this extra-special 14th episode of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny actually have a rare guest, and what a guest it is! We first discovered Dr. Robert M. Price through his excellent podcast The Bible Geek. Despite being atheists, we’ve long been fascinated with Biblical mythology and the Jesus Myth Theory, and Dr. Price is an unbelievable font of knowledge on both those (and many other) topics. We were honored to get to interview him for an hour about the meanings of some of the stories in the Bible and the unlikelihood of a historical Jesus, and we hope you find the hour as fascinating as we did! It’s a broad topic and we just got to do an overview, but if you want to hear more of Dr. Price, check out The Bible Geek podcast, and then check out his many, many books and his Patreon page. Oh, and he has a show called The Lovecraft Geek too, so check that out as well! We’re hoping to get him back on to talk about Lovecraft too, in the near future.
