<p id="yui_3_17_2_1_1511385333345_48737">This week's episode of The Story Cauldron Podcast shows what happens when you shake two parts Greek mythology with one part Judeo-Christian worldview inside a Disney animator's imagination. With this movie where a God-man heroically sacrifices himself to save people from the Devil so that he can return to Heaven to be with his father, we're okay with saying we're in love - it's <em>Hercules!</em></p>
