Hello there, I’m Nuke, as you’ve already guessed, and this is the AntiSF Radio Show Admete, which to me sounds like the perfect name for a dragon, but then all sorts of names are good for dragons. Admete, to get back to the stones, is a suitably charred, dark carbonaceous beast about 50 kilometres across, orbiting our star about once every four years. Admete is so called from Greek mythology for the daughter of king Eurystheus, who appointed the Twelve Labors of Heracles, and one of those labors was to obtain the golden girdle of Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons because Admete coveted it and its magical powers. Sounds like there’s a story in there, just as there is in this show. Two of them, in fact.

In This Show:

  • Executive Reward - by David Scholes - Narrated by Laurie Bell.
  • Daughter Of The Sea - by George Nikolopoulos - Narrated by David Whitaker.
