Ep 124 - Manifest Destiny

This Week: In 1804, Captain Meriwether Lewis and Second Lieutenant William Clark set out from St. Louis, Missouri with the intent of blazing a trail to the western coast of North America-a trip that would set the foundation for the future of the United States of America. But what the history books don't tell you is the true purpose of Lewis and Clark's journey to the west...

In this imaginative retelling of their famous trek, Lewis and Clark embark on a secret mission under direct orders from President Thomas Jefferson. They are going to do more than explore the wild frontier: they're going to catalog exotic life and eliminate the monsters that stand in the way of the safe and rapid expansion of the United States. Join us for Manifest Destiny, Volume 1: Flora and Fauna.


Drinking Game

That's not a Minotaur - Anytime the details of what a Minotaur is is brought up. 

Picture Page, Picture Page, It’s time to do a picture Page - Every time Lewis wants to stop and draw something.

“🎼you're an asshole, an Asshole!" - Every time Clark is a dick, take a drink 

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas-Anytime you see the color red or green used prominently to depict an act of violence, take a drink
