Episode #100 – Kids These Days

Prophecy Radio episode #100 celebrates our huge milestone by looking back on our favorite episodes, guest stars, book discussions, and more. We also break down what Percy, Annabeth, and Grover were doing at the end of Heroes of Olympus in anticipation of the next Percy Jackson book. As always, we also discuss all the latest Rick Riordan news, including the chapter titles for Chalice of the Gods. New episodes of Prophecy Radio air weekly, and we keep our discussions PG-13.

Celebrating 100 episodes of Prophecy Radio (00:30:02)

  • We discuss our favorite episodes of the podcast, particularly over the course of the last 50 episodes.
  • What fun facts have we learned in our nearly two years as a podcast?
  • It’s so hard to pick favorite guest stars, but there are a few authors who really stick out in our minds.
  • It’s also difficult to pick a favorite Rick Riordan Presents book discussion, but we both had similar answers.
  • What were some of our most surprising moments on the podcast?
  • There’s SO much to look forward to in our future.
  • Of course, we can’t wait for Chalice of the Gods.
  • We also can’t wait to be able to talk about the show, but for now, we’re staying #WGASTRONG.
  • Leaving on such a cliffhanger, we can’t wait to get back to The Red Pyramid.
  • There are also a couple of Rick Riordan Presents books that we’re really looking forward to coming up soon!
  • Thank you for listening and celebrating with us!

Chalice of the Gods character catch-up (01:02:49)

  • Chalice of the Gods takes place after the Heroes of Olympus and before Trials of Apollo.
  • Percy Jackson went through A LOT in Heroes of Olympus, like being switched with Jason, losing his Curse of Achilles, and falling into Tartarus.
  • Speaking of Tartarus, there’s a part about him disintegrating, and we’re wondering if that could be related to one of the CotG chapter titles.
  • Will the trio still be mourning Leo’s death, or do they know he’s alive now?
  • Annabeth spends a lot of time looking for Percy until Mark of Athena, where she really gets to shine.
  • We love a good ol’ Percabeth reunion.
  • Percy and Annabeth totally awaken Gaea with their blood, but everything works out in the end and they’ll be at New Rome University soon enough.
  • Grover wasn’t in the Heroes of Olympus a lot, so we’re excited to see more of him in Chalice of the Gods.
  • Will we see Jason in the next book?
  • We also go over some information about Ganymede, since we know he’s an integral part of this story.
  • Could Hebe be the Big Bad of Chalice of the Gods?
  • Did you know we (kind of) saw him in Sea of Monsters?
  • Since we know Iris will also be involved, we get some background information on her as well.
  • Surprisingly, our research also mentioned cupcakes and tea!
  • Did we mention how excited we are for this book!?
