When you were a kid, did you read comic books? Did you ever think that the heroes and villains in these stories embodied universal archetypes that could be traced back to the gods of the ancient world? Did you ever think about the similarities between the make-believe world inhabited by super heroes and the magical world-view of occultism? How much do you know about the esoteric underpinnings of comic book plot lines, or the lives of the men who created them? Now that big budget films and high-def video games are making comic book heroes more popular than ever, now is the perfect time for the research of today’s guest, Christopher Knowles. He has written a fascinating book called Our Gods Wear Spandex: The Secret History of Comic Book Heroes, illustrated by Joseph Michael Linsner and published by Red Wheel/Weiser.



Do you know about the ancient Israelite king Jedidiah? The one known for his wit and wisdom? The one who built the first Jewish temple in Jerusalem?

But that wasn’t the name he was born with. How much do you really know about King Solomon and the Temple he built? How much do you really know about the ancient origins of our Judeo-Christian beliefs? Stay tuned for a fascinating conversation with the British writer Kevin Gest, author of The Secrets of Solomon’s Temple: Discover the Hidden Truth that Lies at the Heart of Freemasonry.
