6 - The Epic of Gilgamesh OR Enkisee, Enkidu!

"If I should fall, I will have made a name for myself! 'Gilgamesh!', they will say, 'it was he who fought Humbaba and cut down the cedar tree to win glory!' My name will be secured for every child born in my house..."
- Tablet II, column vi

(fans of the Civilization series know that Gilgamesh has the best beard hands down)

Wow...what an experience this episode has been. I've been working on this one around the time Episode 5 was finishing up and after a few revisions and new ideas it's finally finished. The epic of Gilgamesh a la Podcast History of Our World is ready for your listening pleasure. It's got it all - monsters, blasphemy, sound effects, and in a very special first for the show - a guest star! I am beyond fortunate to have voice work of the wildly talented, sensationally sultry, the incomparable Alexandra! Without her stepping in I don't know what I would've done! Probably read the female characters in a bad falsetto voice. While wearing a wig for extra effect. 
Yeah...huh? What? Nevermind that, the important thing is that you DON'T have to hear me talk like Marge Simpson AND get someone who knows what they're doing. Everybody wins!
