Chivalry! Honor! Friendship! In this postmodern era, the once-sacred idea of what constitutes a friend has been watered down for most by the simple click of an ADD or REMOVE button.

Join us with special guests Dylan John Callahan and Casey Pemberton as we explore the ancient Greek tale of Pythagorean mystics Damon and Pythias. The important lessons from that tale have been the central aim of the Knights of Pythias since its formal creation during the American Civil War. Bro. Powers considers becoming a Knight, Bro. Marshall recites some poetry, and even Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin garner mention as we discover a film originally created to be a celebration of their famous bond.
