Episode 132: The Death of Heroes (with Christopher Dole)

Every Hero’s Journey has to come to an end eventually. We invited Christopher Dole to tell us five tales of heroes who lived their best lives and how they ended. Also featuring marrying beautiful giants and our Wishbone Fancast.

This week, Julia recommends a classic, The Golden Compass.
