Episode #89 – In Denial

Prophecy Radio episode #89 takes a look at the documentary The Legend of Glynn Turman, starring the man who will be Chiron in Percy Jackson and the Olympians on Disney+. This week, we’re skipping the news, but we’ll be back to catch up in the next episode. We also return to The Kane Chronicles: The Red Pyramid by tackling chapter 13, in which Carter goes forth, like a good king. New episodes of Prophecy Radio air weekly, and we keep our discussions PG-13.

The Legend of Glynn Turman (00:04:34)

  • You can watch The Legend of Glynn Turman for free on Tubi.
  • This documentary was more like an extended interview, but if you like film and theater history, then we highly recommend watching it.
  • What was Glynn’s childhood like?
  • It all goes back to A Raisin in the Sun.
  • He was surrounded by so many important people who changed the course of Hollywood forever.
  • Can you imagine if Glynn had become an aviations engineer instead?
  • Growing up in New York City during that time definitely led to some life experience.
  • His time at the High School of Performing Arts was very informative for him and his career.
  • And while not all of his experiences were good, they turned him into the person he is today.
  • Let’s talk about some career highlights because there are A LOT of them.
  • It seems like Glynn Turman was a witness to history given the people he was surrounded with and the experiences he took part in.
  • Part of it is luck, sure, but his tenacity played a huge role, too.
  • Not to mention that he’s wildly talented. Now we have an urge to go back and watch some of his projects.
  • But how does he remember so many stories!?
  • It was nice to hear him be honest about his low points because, hey, that’s reality.
  • We loved Glynn’s love of horses and Black Western history.
  • Movies like Buffalo Soldiers have always been important to him.
  • We have some other random thoughts like YOUNG JAMES EARL JONES and GREMLINS!
  • What would it have been like if Glynn had been Han Solo?
  • He is the perfect person to play Chiron, and we talk about all the reasons why.

Kane Chronicles: The Red Pyramid discussion (00:51:07)

  • This week, we’re discussing The Red Pyramid chapter 13!
  • Does Carter have a little crush on Zia?
  • It’s funny that they have to deal with cooldowns in this universe.
  • Sadie is like a cat—tell her not to do something, and she’s gonna do it. All while making uncomfortable eye contact.
  • Are female magicians more powerful?
  • Is Carter hardwired for battle just like Percy?
  • What is a ba and does it always have to look like a giant bird? Asking for a friend.
  • Did you know the origins of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice?
  • Gonna pass on meeting a tiger fish, tbh.
  • Do you know how much of Egypt’s ruins we’ve actually uncovered? Because it’s not a whole lot.
  • Time to meet Hannibal Lector the Chief Lector
  • Why are there so few children? Why, Zia!?
