36B-Pocahontas: Between Two Streams

By Jason Weiser

An abbreviated history of Pocahontas and John Smith, this episode looks at the conflict largely from the Powhatan side. This isn't the Disney version. It is gritty, dark, violent, and, if Mattaponi oral history is to be trusted, fairly disturbing. Still, it tells the story of a clash of worlds, and one woman who stood in the middle to bring a brief peace. The creature this week lives in lime trees and, in return for probably not paying rent, will hurt you if you're mean to the tree. Our sponsors: (promo code MYTHS) My interview on The Podcast Digest: Mattaponi Oral History: The Disclaimer (and post): Music: "What does anybody know about anything" by Chris Zabriskie All other music (besides intro/outro and COTW) by Poddington Bear and Blue Dot Sessions
