Turkey

Myth: From the Cradle of Civilization to the Grave: The Tale of One Truly Epic Friendship

Ashley kicks off our Turkish triptych with a tale as old as time…okay, fine, as old as circa 2100 BCE: the Epic of Gilgamesh. This king-sized meal begins with a brief history of Mesopotamia and the city of Uruk to whet your appetite before diving into our main course, the epic poem itself, which centers on the heroic journey of Gilgamesh and his ride-or-die BFF, Enkidu (who in our opinion is the true hero of this story, but what do we know?). To finish our auditory feast, Ashley offers a brief exploration of the deluge myth, so make sure your giant ark is seaworthy and make yourself comfortable because this could go on for 126 years.

 

 

Cryptids: Rasputin Did It: Mystery of the Van Gölü Canavarı

Lindsay closes out our tour of Turkey with three urban legends featuring female leads. For starters, we’ll take a bite out of the legend of Aynali Magara — a tale with a surprisingly explosive ending. Our main dish is the Myth of Sarikiz — the Fair Maiden of Mount Ida: a tale that will make you hate the patriarchy even more than you already do. To close out, dessert is the legend of Kiz Kulesi — a tiny tower with a lot of history that reminds us that it’s never a great idea to lock anyone in a tower, like ever.
