This week's episode is Isolated Islands where we question whether islands are ever truly isolated. Liam looks at the Irish monks of Skellig Michael who sought solitude at the edge of Europe... until some pretty scary dudes arrived in boats (hint hint beards and longships). Zofia explores the small but immensely important Greek island of Delos, the Disney Land of the ancient Mediterranean. Tangents include: monks with great asses, crazy island gossip, Athens being a total dick and was Mithridates the first Karen?
