Welcome to But Why Tho? the podcast, where we talk about the parts of popular culture that people say matter and ask the question but why tho?


Kate, Adrian, and Matt answer this question with through passion, geekdom, history and even some scholarship.

Dec 18, 2017

In this crossover, Matt sits down with Jason Flatt, host of the Holy Star Wars podcast to discuss the religion and mythology of Assassin's Creed. But you won't get an explanation of historical parallels to the Templars and the Assassin's like everywhere else. Instead, they dive deep into the myth of the Isu, the gods of the games, the first people, ancient aliens, and how free-will comes into play in religion and beyond. 

Music used: Assassin's Creed: Origins Cinematic trailer music, Fly Like an Eagle by Seal
