6: The Themes Surface, Unfortunately

The Lightning Thief, ch. 20 to 22.

We did it! We finish The Lightning Thief! Don’t worry, folks, because in this heavily-packed episode of Unwise Girls, we talk all about… Percy Jackson’s relationship to 9/11? Yikes! We end up talking a lot about the book’s nationalistic tendencies, but we also get to discuss a cool swordfight, Percy’s character growth, Poseidon’s weirdly realistic Bad Dad Behaviors, and the genuinely pretty good villain reveal. Listen ’til the end for our discovery of the world’s weirdest Percy Jackson website, and our return to the questions segment!
