We experience Artificial Intelligence in our lives every day – when Netflix recommends something we might like, Facebook recognises us in a picture, Spotify builds us a playlist or Microsoft's intelligent assistant understands a spoken instruction. All of these used to be things that humans – and only humans – could do. But AI is also powering business transformation and enabling new products and services – in ways we’ve never thought of before. Most of us haven't had the conversation about ...
 
Mount Olympus is an episode by episode review of the smash 90s television programs "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" and its spinoff "Xena: Warrior Princess," which still enjoy unparalleled cultural relevance today! Or ... at least they do in the hearts of our hosts. Kevin Sorbo, Lucy Lawless, and friends (along with fan favorite Bruce Campbell!) stomp, fight, and flirt their way through the New Zealand countryside - and we break it down week by week.

Alright bear with us because Alti is back, Gabby doesn't know spirit magic at all, Amarice isn't an Amazon, and Xena's isn't comfortable fighting in her own skin.

Herc vants to vight vampires ah ah ah ahhhhhh in Hercules Episode 107: Darkness Visible. Herc and Iolaus go hang out with their friend Vlad, who impales for fun sometimes and speaks only in double entendres. It turns into a strigoi situation.

Herc visits his previously unmentioned friend Oedipus, with which he apparently missed a few key details of his life in the past couple years. Then the episode becomes about Antigone. Our enthusiasm is easily restrained. Before that the Panel arrives to Sea Shanties late, and Mark has cat related Ms. Pac-Man misfortunes. Our Own Hercules of Radio: …
 
Gabrielle forgets that staves are awesome, Eli forgets that he should be madder about people deciding pacifism isn't for them, Joxer forgets that we've already moved way past his crush on Gabrielle, Amarice forgets why she's here, and Xena forgets everything. This is all so Ares can remember what it is like to be cool awesome Ares. Also there is br…
 
The final season of Hercules will be dark and mature. But certainly not this week with Hercules Ep 105 - Love, Amazon Style. Aphrodite and Hephaestus are on the skids, and Deimos is looking for the Cronus stone, while Iolaus is sometimes bad Iolaus, and Herc is just over it. Also shout out to currently in tax jail Salmoneus. Meanwhile the panel add…
 
Friend of The Show Adam returns once more as the panel....well engages with Hercules in the Underworld A real mixed bag as Hercules has to figure out why the underworld is wrecked (it's a loose dog) and also has to murder his centaur frenemy for trying to assault his wife, so that that centaur bleeds all over a cloak so that that cloak can try to c…
 
Look this movie starts out on New Year's Eve so this is why this is happening. We take a look at High School musical, one that Meg and Lucas like and Mark and Brian are....less than enthusiastic about. And that bubbling cauldron of not enthusiasm is going to go on for about two and a half hours. Reviewing High School musical - a sign that 2020 is s…
 
It's Christmas time once more, and we take on the hit of the late 1980s that someone time shifted to get made in the 2010s 'The Christmas Dragon' watch this heartwarming, parent overwarming delve into how plucky orphan kids have to save Christmas from a mild family spat and not so mild bounty hunting slavers. Also dragons occasionally appear, but n…
 
Apparently now we're just dealing with the forces of Hell on the regular with Xena: Episode 91: Fallen Angel. We break out our religious studies degrees to look at this key powerful episode of the series, where all heroes go to Hell, and Heaven, and Earth, and not necessarily in that order. Archangel Michael shows up again to be all Archangely. The…
 
Remember when we thought we had peaked weird last week? That was before we kicked off season 6 with Hercules: Episode 104 - Be Deviled Did you know Hercules was Pro Death Penalty that one time? Also somehow captured a murderer that Iolaus never knew about? Also Iolaus skips out on paying for things! Also Also Also people are getting kicked out of T…
 
Look...they can't all be winners, which we learn with Xena Episode 90: Déjà Vu All Over Again. It's a clip show, and an inexplicable future show, where we only have to pack in about 10 minutes of new material and someone opened up their bag of "Jokes that aren't going to age well at all by 2020" and poured the whole thing in! But we move forward an…
 
Look, the world had a good run and its time to end it in Hercules Episode 103 - Revelations. What about all the other seals? is Gabriel an Archangel? Why isn't Michael's house nicer?

Alright, so do you remember Nautica, but actively don't remember all the important parts of the plot she was in last time? Good cause the writers don't really remember either, so forget that whole plot or whatever it's time for an episode that's kind of a hot mess.....and yet there's something sort of charmusing about it. (Charming and amusing). Al…
 
Someone woke up and remembered Gabby is alt queen of the Amazons, oh we have to get rid of Pompey, oh wait we gotta get Brutus in here to remind us that he's gonna go all stabby stab on Caesar, throw it all in a blender and go folks in Xena Episode 88: Endgame. The panel plays a lot of Hades and talks about their time with friends in lowww places a…
 
Hercules starts to disappear and we're pretty sure that continuity is going to forget about Hercules Episode 101: Fade Out. There are curses and cyclops eyes and Ares and Discord and Deimos who is effectively discount strife, and also strife's identical cousin. Also some interesting fading effects that are replaced about 10 minutes in with Hercules…
 
Alright, its time not not be serious, it's time to solve a murder in Xena: Episode 87 Takes One to Know One.

Hercules sees Morrigan for the last time and King Arthur comes back in time to learn not to be a jerk in Hercules Ep 100: Once Upon a Future King.

Look out everyone, Joxer kills a guy and Najara is back in Xena Episode 86: The Convert Daoud does a guest spot on the show for the first time with the whole panel, and has quite a bone to pick with Najara and her portrayal.

We're out of India and Xena is going to wander off for a Xena Lite episode in Xena Episode 85: The Play's the Thing! This episode is just the kind of silly nonsense we all need right now. It's also absolutely just the plot of the producers. The panel also reflects on the annual con, this year made digital, but still kicking! Mount Olympus is a prod…
 
Hercules and Jason and the cast of Young Hercules get together for one last score........is more or less what is going on here in Hercules Episode 98 - The Academy.

And now, as we do every week when we totally biff our recording schedule - Baywatch Nights! Do you remember Baywatch? Do you want a version that tries to tell you it is more sexy because it happens at night only to notice most of the episode happens during the day? Are you willing to go through season one so they can hunt a werewolf in season two? …
 
India Part 3 with Xena: Episode 84 The Way - The show apologizes for offending a world religion, and we try to tackle it as best we can.

Wait a minute, what happened to Morrigan is the question we'll have answered in Hercules Episode 97 - We'll Always Have Cyprus! In an episode with only about 10 minutes of plot we'll explore all 40 minutes of that 10 minutes of plot. Mark make dice, and Meg swoons over trash boys. Mount Olympus is a product of Retrograde Orbit Radio, and is brought…
 
India Part 2 with Xena: Episode 83 Between the Lines - The panel is at a complete loss to explain this one that involves reincarnation, but more preincarnation, and also they fight Alti? But like a future incarnation, but then their current selves fight the future incarnation? This ones a hot mess. The panel discusses the merits of Hawaiian Shirts.…
 
Its another strange one with Hercules Episode 96: Greece is Burning. Herc goes and sees old dance partner Althea who is pursuing her life long passion of 'not dance' in the fashion industry, in a town of fashion police. Madame Twanky and Right Said Fred come in with assists. In news that shocks no one, the panel reads books. Mount Olympus is a prod…
 
Time to go to India in Xena Episode 82: Devi - Things are shall we say lightly problematic when it seems like Gabrielle might be a venerated Holy Healing Goddess in an Indian Town.

Everyone except the showrunners decide they need to let old Iolaus go in Hercules Episode 95 - Just Passing Through - The panel starts off questioning why everything feels seasons oneish until it dawns on them that Hercules is telling the viewer how every episode of Hercules plays in his mind and suddenly it becomes a piece of brilliance. Mount Oly…
 
It's Xena Episode 81: Paradise Found - Which the panel treats as a horrific dystopia of an episode. Not because it introduces anything so interesting, but because we're treated to the 700th iteration of Xena not being good enough for Gabrielle. We wanted the story of a Goodness vampire to be better, but alas it is not. Brian and Meg talk about doom…
 
The show has buyer's remorse over the 'Kill your best friend sidekick package' and so we go to Stranger World for Hercules Episode 94 - Stranger and Stranger, where Herc can encounter an alternate version of Iolaus as long as we retcon everything that made Strange world important. Also Love God Ares shows up baby. The panel talks about board games …
 
Gabby wears a sack and Xena halfhearted stops a warlord and Aphrodite and Joxer are....here I guess, and there's a little girl who needs to learn about Cinderella to get along with her stepmother, in a choice of tale that can only be behind Snow White for bad choices of tale to choose if you're trying to get someone to love their stepmother. Also t…
 
It is certainly an episode that exists / happens with Herc vs. the volcano in Hercules: Episode 93 - Sky High. Hercules and inexplicably Ephiny team up with a bunch of people that don't matter to divert a volcano with magic rocks from Atlantis. Srsly. Mark tries to sell the panel real hard on watching instead the Kurt Russell super hero high school…
 
In an unusually timely episode we hit Xena Episode 79: Daughter of Pomira - Xena and Gabby get mixed up in a real complicated story of racial hatred that doesn't tie a nice bow on it to make everyone feel good at the end. Xena gets over her hate Captain Kirk Star Trek VI style and Gabby fails to read the room throughout the entire episode. This one…
 
Finally after all of this time, all of this absurd time we bring down Dahak in Hercules Episode 92 - Redemption! Is it a good one? Well let's sidestep a direct answer to that and say Dahak is going to lose and we'll spend five minutes or so discussing whether or not Zoroastrianism is the one true way. Also, it's a podcast, so we commit the sin of t…
 
We take a break from heavy story and invest in heavy shenanigans with Xena Episode 78: The Key to the Kingdom. We spend very little time with Xena and a lot of time with Meg as she goes Kingnapping with Joxer and Autolycus Also we explore the wild world of The Cutting Edge. Toe-pick. Mount Olympus is a product of Retrograde Orbit Radio, and is brou…
 
We're just about to bring down the house on this whole Dahak business with Hercules Episode 91 - Let There Be Light - Spoilers it might rule.

Mount Olympus is a product of Retrograde Orbit R…
 
Alright, this time we've got all the backstory now for sure, full stop no foolin' in Xena Episode 77 - Past Imperfect. Xena gets hit in the head and gains the power of....memory apparently. And we flashback to the Borias Warlord times and occasionally flash forward to the Xena Gabby get nailed to a cross times. Also the whole panel is back together…
 
Friend of The Show Adam returns as they finally, finally tackle the next Hercules movie Hercules and the Circle of Fire. We meet Herc's future wife and Zeus is.....there I guess? Look this one is mostly aimless. And it sort of almost retells a story of Prometheus, kind of, but not really. Which is also the review we give if asked is this a real Her…
 
Meg and Lucas rescue the show and make sure there is some forward momentum as Mark and Brian aren't around to review Hercules Episode 90 - For Those of You Just Joining Us - Everything goes off the rails in this modern day episode where the writers room is being stalked by a killer. Also, Meg and Lucas finally cross 'star wars games' off the jeopar…
 
It's April, that means diversions, and in this one we visit not Brisco County the place, but Brisco County the man, and Brisco County the state of mind. See what the panel has to say about this short lived classic Mount Olympus is an episode by episode review of the smash 90s television programs "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" and its spinoff "X…
 
Meg and Lucas take the helm as Brian and Mark are lost somewhere in the isolation mines and the excuse 'off on assignment' isn't going to hold up. So while there is no normal podcast this week, and no eurovision this year, we thought that meant it was the perfect time to talk about all your unmet eurovision needs that you didn't know you needed. Mo…
 
Gabby gets a bit of the ole' wandering eye and Xena remembers that flashback from the beginning of the season in Xena Episode 76: Crusader. Gabby's new crush might be the ideal of the light, you know aside from that pesky 'freeing of souls' and all. Episode somehow descends into Pratchett talk. Mount Olympus is a product of Retrograde Orbit Radio, …
 
The panel starts getting the isolation madness and Iolaus is apparently back! Is he a ghost? Is he undead? Is it.....oh wait....its Dahak isn't it. Yep Hercules Episode 89 - Darkness Rising Mark attacks Brian with compliments, Brian tries to deflect in vain. Mount Olympus is a product of Retrograde Orbit Radio, and is brought to you by the followin…
 
In the sixth episode of Actually Interesting, The Spinoff’s monthly podcast exploring the effect Artificial Intelligence has on our lives, Russell Brown looks at the draft algorithm charter, the government's commitment to transparent and accountable use of AI.

It's an awkward time to talk about the end of the world in Hercules Ep 88: Somewhere over the Rainbow Bridge. Ragnarok is here apparently as Hercules kills off another pantheon (at least briefly) The panel discusses parades, but first we acknowledge the elephandemic in the room. Mount Olympus is a product of Retrograde Orbit Radio, and is brought t…
