Episode #48 – Father Who Is a God

Prophecy Radio episode #48 assigns superlatives to our favorite Percy Jackson crossover ideas. Which property would make for the best TV show? The worst? The bloodiest!? Karen and Kristen also tackle all the latest news, including Rick Riordan’s presence at D23, as well as discuss Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian chapter 3. New episodes of Prophecy Radio air weekly, and all ages are welcome to tune in.

Percy Jackson Superlatives/Crossover (00:20:12)

  • We’re trying something a little different today with this episode, but it ended up being pretty fun!
  • First up is which property would crossover with Percy Jackson the most seamlessly?
  • Who here remembers the movie Sky High?
  • Blood of Zeus also seems like an obvious answer.
  • Nothing would be more intense than a Game of Thrones/Percy Jackson crossover.
  • Stranger Things would also be a good fit, but pretty dark for everyone involved.
  • When we said most ridiculous, we meant it.
  • What would be more hilarious, watching Grover or Clarisse immersed in the world of Zootopia?
  • Could Riverdale get more ridiculous with the inclusion of Percy Jackson?
  • Okay, when we say worst fit, we mean the world that wouldn’t gel with Percy’s universe.
  • Kristen nails this one on the head with Star Trek.
  • For some of the same reasons, Karen thinks Percy & Co. wouldn’t do well on Mythic Quest.
  • Is it weird that Kristen’s bloodiest show would actually be an EXCELLENT fit for the Percy Jackson universe and Camp half-Blood?
  • Would the Winchesters hunt down the demigods or ally themselves with them?
  • How amazing would a Doctor Who/Percy Jackson crossover be??
  • Imagining Percy and his friends in the world of The 100 gets our creative juices flowing.
  • We had the genius idea to end on the most delightful crossover scenarios.
  • How perfect would the demigods fit into Pawnee, Indiana!?
  • Okay, but can we get a show like The Good Place but about the Underworld?
  • But really, let’s do a Greek demigod version of Modern Family.
  • Our listeners also wrote in to tell us some of their crossover ideas.

Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian discussion (01:12:39)

  • It’s time to jump into The Last Olympian chapter 3!
  • This book feels different from the other ones. It’s a lot less hopeful in the beginning.
  • Losing Beckendorf is a huge blow to Camp.
  • How do we feel about Annabeth asking about Luke?
  • Will this ACTUALLY be Percy’s last trip to the attic?
  • You’re telling us the Great Prophecy was RIGHT THERE THE WHOLE TIME?
  • Whatever Clarisse is upset about, it has to be big enough to do it in front of Silena right after they found out Charlie died.
  • We’re not counting this in our Prophecy Count, by the way, since we heard it once already (in part).
  • Has Percy already fulfilled part of the prophecy?
  • We wonder who the spy could possibly be…
  • Percy says there’s a bigger threat than Typhon, and we’re inclined to believe him.
  • Is Percy gonna tell his mom about the prophecy?

Feedback (01:33:30)

  • Laura is loving our one-chapter-a-week-discussions, too!
  • She also has some mythology-themed book recs on the way.

Thanks for listening, and tune in next time for episode 49 (to be determined…).
