Pop Medieval Ep 23: Thar Be Dragons!

Mo-vember continues (but with some more family friendly counter-programing this time)! This episode, Doc and Nina offer up 1982’s “The Flight of Dragons,” a Rankin/Bass animated medieval-fantasy adventure and one of Nina’s childhood favorites. Dragons, magic, celebrity voice acting, and theological debates – this is some heavy stuff for a children’s movie, folks, but somehow it still works!

Also in this episode, Doc and Nina discuss what dragons represent in medieval history; the movie’s recurring science versus religion themes, and the interesting choices of knighthood and chivalry. Plus, Doc does some karaoke!
