19. Ancient Egypt: Crazy or Cool?

Our special guests, Egyptologist and author Malayna Evans, and her daughter Soren, also take us inside the Pyramids and tell us all about tree goddesses, cat lovers and looking good in the afterlife. And they reveal that the most famous ‘Egyptian’ of them all isn’t even Egyptian!

For more on Malayna’s children’s book, click: Jagger Jones and the Mummy’s Ankh. Watch out for crazy magic spells, giant crocodiles and killer scorpions!
